Wait times for the polling locations across Central Texas

Find out how long the wait times are at Austin-area polling locations.

AUSTIN, Texas — Tuesday, Nov. 8, is Election Day, and that means you'll want to know which polling location in your area has the shortest wait time.

After the early voting period ended on Nov. 4, the only day for Central Texas residents to cast their vote is on Election Day. This will likely lead to long lines outside of polling locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

Before you head to the polls, brush up on what you need to know with KVUE's voter guide and then check where you can vote here.

For voters in Travis County, the Travis County Clerk has a live map indicating how long wait times are all across the county. The map is even color coded: green means 20 minutes or under, yellow is between 21 to 50 minutes and red is longer than 50 minutes.

Voters in Williamson County should reference this live map with their location turned "on" in the browser (you don't need to type in an address or any other information). Your browser will tell you what your closest polling location is and how to get there from your current location.

Hays County residents can reference this live map for all the wait times across the county. A difference from the Travis County live map is that the Hays County map labels green as a zero-to-10-minute wait time and yellow as a 10-to-20-minute wait time. Anything over 20 minutes is red.

Once the polls close at 7 p.m. on Nov. 8, keep up with the latest election results at KVUE.com/Elections.
