(KLTV) -

Here's a list of things you need to know before you vote:

Are you registered?

Click here to check the Texas Secretary of State website to see if you’re registered to vote

If you’re not registered yet, you won’t be able to vote in the March 1 primary (the deadline was Feb. 1), but if you register before Oct. 8, you can vote in the general election in Nov.

If you’re not registered to vote, you can do so here.


Where to vote?

When you check if you’re registered, make sure you make note of what precinct you’re in. You’ll need that to find out where you can vote.
