How best to use this site
All those races! All those candidates! All those political signs on the side of the road! Where do you even begin to make sense of it all?
We’ve got you covered. Here’s our advice…
1 Get your sample ballot
There are lots of races and candidates, but not all will be on your ballot. So first, go to the Tarrant County Voter Lookup page. (If you need help navigating that page to get your sample ballot, see https://tarrantvotes.com/about-voting/voting/.)
2 Research the candidates listed on your sample ballot
While candidate information is no longer available on this site, you can use other resources to do your research. Look for news articles, candidate websites, candidate social media sites, or even set a Google alert.
3 Make your choices and mark them on your sample ballot
You can take the marked sample ballot into the voting booth to make the process of voting fast and easy.
That’s it! Thank you for being an informed voter!
