Main Campus to serve as early voting site for May 24 primary runoffs

Main Campus to serve as early voting site for May 24 primary runoffs

MAY 16, 2022 — UTSA students, faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to raise their voices and participate in the upcoming joint primary runoff election.

Early voting runs Monday, May 16, through Friday, May 20. Election day is Tuesday, May 24. Any registered Bexar County voter may vote at the H-E-B Student Union Bexar Room (HSU 1.102).

The Downtown Campus community can vote early at the nearby Bexar County Elections Office, located at 1103 S. Frio St. Voters will need to show a valid photo ID or secondary supporting ID.

All polling locations in Bexar County have the Express Touch voting unit for curbside voting use. Voters are encouraged to call ahead to the Elections office at 210-335-8683 to notify the early voting clerk at their center that they want.

Voting Hours:

Monday, May 16 - Friday, May 20

8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Tuesday, May 24

7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

Eligible voters who did not vote in the March 1 primaries can choose to vote in either the Democratic or Republican runoff. Those who voted on March 1 will receive the ballot for the same party they voted for in the primary.

Texas is a state with open primaries. Voters can choose the party they would like to vote for in primary elections, regardless of which party they identify with. Primary runoffs, however, require individuals to vote within the party they selected in the primary according to Texas Election Code 162.012 and are not allowed to vote for one party during the primary and another during the runoff.

Visit the Bexar County Elections Department for sample ballots for both Democratic and Republican parties and a complete list of polling locations throughout San Antonio.

Voters are encouraged to take an “I Voted” selfie at least 100 feet from the polling station and tag the UTSA Office of Civic and Community-Engaged Leadership at @UTSAEngaged and #RowdyVOTES.
