North Texas elections officials say they're ready for Tuesday's midterms

County elections officials say they are ready for a big Election Day turnout in North Texas.

Dallas County saw the second-most number of early voters in the state and believe Tuesday will likely be another large showing.

On Monday, officials were hosting some refresher training courses for poll workers about the voting machines that will be used and making final preps for all of the voting sites.

"We have increased our teams, our emergency teams out there for our judges and we've also increased the number of CID agents from the sheriff's department in case there are some issues where someone needs to be arrested,” said Dallas County Elections Supervisor Toni Pippins-Poole.

She said voters need to be sure to have a proper form of identification with them as well as patience and respect for others.

"We have had instances with early voting that have alerted us that we have some issues with aggressive voters, overly aggressive poll watchers. We are geared up for any kind of incidents the judges absolutely cannot handle,” Pippins-Poole said.

There are two-page ballots as opposed to one due to local race in eight jurisdictions in Dallas County: Dallas, DeSoto, Duncanville, Glen Heights, Seagoville, Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD, Dallas ISD and Richardson ISD.

At election headquarters in Collin County there will be 30 people answering phones all day Tuesday and 10 technicians roaming. The county has 68 voting centers to accommodate any voter with a Collin County address.

"Some counties are traditional where you go to a designated polling place but Collin County, just make a choice wherever you want to go,” said administrator Bruce Sherbet.

Voters must bring one of the following valid forms of ID: a Texas driver's license, Texas election ID certificate, Texas personal ID card, Texas handgun license, United States military ID card with a photo, United States citizenship certificate with photo or a U.S. passport.

Substitute forms of ID include: certified domestic birth certificate or court admissible birth document, current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or government document with your name and an address. You would then fill out a reasonable impediment declaration form at the polls.

Polls open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and close at 7 p.m.
