Early voting has officially opened, allowing many to skip what may be long lines on Nov. 8. With several local races on the ballot, including Del Mar College’s $139 million bond, and Americans set to select a new president, turnout is expected to be high.

Voters can cast their ballot early at the Heldenfels Administration Building on East Campus. To make it easier, the college has reserved parking spaces for voters adjacent to the building. Curbside voting will also be available at this location for those physically unable to enter the polling place.

Early voting runs through Nov. 4. Ballots can be cast in the Heldenfels Building from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Oct. 24-28, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 29, noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 30 and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 31 through Nov. 4. Election Day voting runs 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 8.

Nueces County residents can cast ballots at any early voting location in the county. Election Day ballots must be cast in your precinct. Don’t forget to bring your voter ID card and a valid picture ID.
