It’s time to vote in Frisco again! This January, Frisco citizens have the opportunity to vote in a special election for city council. Learn more about what you’re voting for, when to vote, and where you can vote.
What’s on the Ballot
Frisco residents will vote for City Council Place 5. A current city council member has resigned from the position as he intends to run for a position in the Denton County Commissioners Court. Frisco City Council is an “at-large” council, meaning no council member represents a specific geographic area of the city. As such, all eligible voters in the city may vote in this election.

Where to Vote
In the 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. In this election, there will be three voting locations per county.
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:
