ROCKWALL COUNTY – Early voting began across Texas today for US President, Congress, state and local elections, and will continue through Nov. 4.
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.
Rockwall County residents who are registered to vote can do so using either paper ballots or voting machines at either the Rockwall County Library, Heath City Hall, Royse City City Hall or Cullins-Lake Pointe Elementary School in Rowlett.

According to County Elections Administrator, Christopher Lynch, there are roughly 57,000 registered voters in the County so vote early.
“Historical data indicates that the voter turnout will be over 75 percent,” he said “Typically about 50 percent of the citizens vote during the early voting period, so the potential for huge turnout and lines on Election Day exists. The county has purchased additional equipment to offset this, as well as a robust package of paper ballots. I say to all: VOTE EARLY!”
