Vote in Upcoming Election

The University of Texas at Austin encourages all faculty and staff to vote in the upcoming election. Many counties offer convenient opportunities for early voting. You may go to the Vote Texas website for details about early voting and election-day voting locations throughout Texas.

Early voting in Travis County is Tuesday, October 13, through Friday, October 30. Election day is Tuesday, November 3. You may view the Travis County Clerk’s website for Travis County times and voting locations, including locations within walking distance to Cap Metro bus stops.

The university will have two early voting locations open to our campus community and the general public. The Peter T. Flawn Academic Center (FAC) and Gregory Gym will be open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. COVID-19 health and safety protocols will be in place, including social distancing and line management. Employees should continue to follow the university’s COVID-19 policies, including the recommended protective face mask guidance. Travis County staff and poll workers will offer free masks while following the state’s Voter Health and Safety requirements, which do not require voters to wear face coverings.

UT Reads - The Sword and The Shield by Peniel Joseph

Community is powerful. In times of crisis, we need a strong community to help us learn and move forward.

UT Reads is a Learning & Development campaign to encourage The University of Texas at Austin community to read the same book and discuss our experience. Our aim is to make this a recurring event.

The book for the first cycle of UT Reads is The Sword and the Shield, a dual biography of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr, written by Dr. Peniel Joseph, director of The Center for the Study of Race and Democracy.
