Once again, the University of Houston will be hosting early voting and Election Day voting locations for all registered voters in Harris County. Working together with student leaders, UH Athletics and the Office of the Harris County Clerk, UH has taken as many precautions as possible in establishing these voting locations in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Early voting will be held in the UH Student Center and Election Day voting will be held at the TDECU Stadium Club Level. In addition, early voting has been extended by one week to a total of three weeks, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 13, and concluding Friday, Oct. 30.
“The selection of TDECU was made after a group of student leaders voiced concerns about the ability for students to social distance on Election Day, given the history of long lines particular to that day,” said Jason Smith, UH vice president of governmental relations. “The TDECU Stadium Club was determined to be viable option given that voters could line up outdoors in the concourse of the stadium, but still be under cover in case of rain, heat or other weather issues.”
To avoid standing in long lines during early voting and on Election Day at these locations, or any location in Harris County, voters are encouraged to utilize the Harris County’s interactive map that updates wait times for poling locations across the county. It can be found here.
