The UTSA Office of Civic & Community-Engaged Leadership strongly encourages students, faculty, staff and the community to make their voices heard by casting their vote during the early voting period. Area residents and employees at Valero, NuStar and other local businesses are also invited and encouraged to use the convenient early voting location at the UTSA Main Campus. Marked reserved parking will be available for voters on the south side of the H-E-B Student Union.

In 2022, UTSA was one of 394 colleges and universities recognized by the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge for making intentional efforts to increase student voter participation.
