SAN ANTONIO - People who didn't get a chance to vote early can cast their vote on Tuesday, election day.

Unlike early voting, people must vote at their assigned polling site on election day. 

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.


Voters will have the opportunity to vote for a U.S. Senate seat, several U.S. House seats and a host of state and local seats. 


City of San Antonio registered voters will have the opportunity to vote on three charter amendments.

What are San Antonio's 3 charter amendments and what happens if they pass?

One amendment would put a term limit and salary cap on the city manager's position.

SA could have tough time finding next city manager if charter amendment passes, expert says

Additionally, registered voters of Bexar County residing within 5 miles of the boundary of Camp Bullis and Camp Stanley, and registered voters of Bexar County residing within 5 miles of the boundary of Lackland Air Force Base and Medina Base Training Annex, will have the opportunity to choose between being annexed by the city or providing the city with the authority to adopt and enforce an ordinance regulating the land use in the area in the manner recommended by the most recent joint land use study.
