Gov. Greg Abbott (R) extended the early voting period for the November 3 general election by six days. Early voting in person will begin October 13 instead of October 19 and run through October 30. Abbott put a similar extension in place for the July 14 primary runoff and special elections.

Abbott also suspended Section 86.006(a-1), Election Code, to the “extent necessary” to enable a voter to deliver a mail ballot in person to the early voting clerk’s office prior to and during Election Day. That section of law permits a voter to do so only on Election Day.
