Where to Vote
In State of Texas, counties control many of the rules and regulations of elections, including where you will vote. Frisco is in both Collin County and Denton County. Collin County and Denton County have different rules on where you will vote. This means where you can vote will vary depending on where you live in the City of Frisco.
Please note: If you are searching by precinct number, your precinct number may have changed. Texas is in the process of redistricting and that process has changed precinct numbers. This is most important to Denton County voters who are voting on election day because your voting location is determined by your precinct.
The Collin County Elections administration states that it uses “Vote Centers”, meaning that Collin County residents registered to vote in Collin County can vote at any polling location in the county. The links below provide a list of polling centers in the county:
Denton County is a little bit different than Collin County when it comes to voting. The Denton County Elections Administration states that during the early voting period, voters registered in Denton County can vote at any polling location within the county. The difference is on election day itself. On election day, you must vote at your assigned polling location. Note: This will depend on which primary you would like to vote in because on election day, each party has different primary locations. The links below provide more information. The first link provides a map of early voting locations. The second link provides a voter lookup to determine what your assigned polling places are.
