Bowie County’s Application to Participate in Countywide Voting has been approved by the Texas Secretary of State. The County submitted an Application on July 13, 2022, and received word of approval on Friday, August 12.

There will be 22 Vote Centers strategically located across the county. On election day a
registered voter can vote at any location from 7am to 7pm. A list of the locations will be
formally approved by the Commissioners at their August 22, 2022, Court meeting and will
be available to view on the Bowie County webpage co.bowie.tx.us/page/bowie.Elections
after approval.

Pat McCoy, Elections Administrator for Bowie County said “With less than 90 days to the
November 8 General Election, this solves several issues voters have on election day. The
main issue is the question, where do I vote? Qualified voters can vote at any of the Vote
Centers across the county.”

He added, “There’s no more need rushing home after work to get in line by 7 0’clock to vote at your assigned precinct. Voter can now choose to vote where they live, work, shop,  or go to school.

Countywide voting makes voting more convenient, more secure, potentially increases voter
turnout, and prevents eligible voters from being turned away or given a provisional ballot
because the voter is in the wrong voting precinct on election day.

Voters will have their first opportunity to use the new program beginning with the
November 8, 2022, General/Joint Elections. In the future, all elections, including general,
special, joint, primaries, and runoffs will be eligible to use the countywide polling centers.
