Early voting for the Nov. 3 election will begin Oct. 13, according to a Monday order by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and run through Oct. 30. Early voting was previously set to begin Oct. 19.


In a statement, Abbott cited the ongoing pandemic and the need for social distancing:

"As we respond to COVID-19, the State of Texas is focused on strategies that preserve Texans' ability to vote in a way that also mitigates the spread of the virus," said Governor Abbott. "By extending the early voting period and expanding the period in which mail-in ballots can be hand-delivered, Texans will have greater flexibility to cast their ballots, while at the same time protecting themselves and others from COVID-19."
