EL PASO, Texas -- Primary election day in Texas is Tuesday, March 3.

On Election Day, officials note that you must vote at the precinct where you are registered to vote. Below is the list of permanent polling places for El Paso County. If you need help finding your precinct, click here.

All Texans’ ballots will include the presidential and statewide races, but the rest of the races on there will be determined by where you live. All congressional and Texas House districts are up for election this year, along with one U.S. Senate seat, several Texas state Senate seats and eight State Board of Education seats. In El Paso County, there are county commissioner, judge and district attorney races.

Below are the sample ballots for El Paso County, first for Democrats and then for Republicans.

Remember when you go to your polling location that you’ll need one of seven types of valid photo ID to vote in Texas:

  • A state driver’s license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety
  • A Texas election identification certificate (issued by DPS)
  • A Texas personal identification card (issued by DPS)
  • A Texas license to carry a handgun (issued by DPS)
  • A U.S. military ID card with a personal photo
  • A U.S. citizenship certificate with a personal photo
  • A U.S. passport

Voters can still cast votes if they sign a form swearing that they have a “reasonable impediment” from obtaining a proper photo ID. However, those voters will also have to present one of the following types of identification:

  • A valid voter registration certificate
  • A certified birth certificate
  • A copy of or an original current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other document that shows the voter’s name and address. (Any government document that contains a voter’s photo must be an original.)
