UTSA Main Campus Student Union building

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is a designated early voting site for the March 6 Bexar County Joint Primary Election. Any registered Bexar County voter may cast a ballot at UTSA Feb. 20 to March 2 in the H-E-B Student Union (formerly University Center) Bexar Room (HSU 1.102) on the Main Campus.

During the primary election, a voter will vote for candidates on either the Republican or Democratic ballot. In Texas, the voter may not vote for both Republicans and Democrats during the Primary. If the voter does not tell the judge whether they wish to vote Democratic or Republican, then the judge will be unable to provide a ballot for the voter.

The Center for Civic Engagement strongly encourages students, staff, faculty and community to stop by and make their voices heard by casting their vote at UTSA.
