Please vote early this year - you'll be glad you did. Early voting starts on Monday October 20th at 7AM and continues until Friday 7PM on October 31st at several convenient locations around Collin County on October 20th 2008.

Please remember to take your Voter's Registration Card with you to the early voting polling place when you vote.

Please DO NOT cut the bar code off of the orange card - election clerks can use the bar code to electronically verify your voter registration status, which makes the voting lines move much faster for everyone!!!
