Collin County voters can vote anywhere

Posted: Updated:
McKINNEY, Texas -

Collin County is trying to ensure that voting is as convenient as possible. And it's hoping to cut down wait times by letting voters cast a ballot anywhere.

Although the system has been in place for a while, this will be the first presidential election where voters will be allowed to vote at whichever polling place they'd like, regardless of the precinct they live in.

"Voters can go to any of the 67 locations open throughout the county tomorrow," said Sharon Rowe, the Collin County Elections Administrator.

The county is among just a handful in the state offering the option. It uses laptops to check voters in electronically when they arrive.

There's also a website that lists all the polling locations with an indication of the wait times.

"It's a much better way of doing it the way they've got it set up these days," said Terry Tankersley, a county resident.
