LUBBOCK, TX -- With voting centers for Tuesday's Primary Election opening at 7 AM, the Lubbock County Elections Office wants to remind everyone of a few things to keep in mind before heading to the polls.

Tip number one -- location location location! Lubbock County has 36 different voting centers. You can vote at any of those, no matter where in the county you live.
But remember, United Supermarkets is an early voting location only. You won't be able to vote at one on Tuesday.

But what if you don't know where that nearest location is? Tip number two -- use your phone. You can text a zipcode to 75044. You'll receive a text back with the polls closest to where you are.

Number three -- Remember that state law requires you present a state or federally issued photo ID when you go to vote. But don't worry, you've got a few options.
- Drivers license
- Election ID certificate
- Personal ID card
- Concealed handgun license
- US military ID card
- US citizenship certificate
- US passport
will all be accepted for you to vote.

Last but not least -- you've got 12 hours to vote. Polls are open from 7 AM to 7 PM.
And, Elections Office officials say as long as you're in line to vote by 7 PM, you cannot be denied.

If you don't have it already, be sure to download the Everything Lubbock app for your iPhone or Android. The 'Election Headquarters' tab will keep you updated with all the latest race numbers.
