We know you have a lot of a pent-up Pride, well here’s your chance to let it all out! We want every LGBTQ+ person and ally in Austin to turn out and vote like your rights, future, dignity, and life depend on it–because they do! Grab your Pride outfit, some friends, some flags, and get your civic booty to the polls!

This is YOUR day to vote. This day is inclusive and welcoming of ALL people.

The intention of Pride at the Polls is to increase voter turnout among the LGBTQ+ community and particularly younger people. If you are a first-time voter, know that you will be amongst your peers in line. Feel free to ask questions! Voting can seem daunting sometimes, especially if it’s your first time, but you belong at the polls.

Wear your loudest and proudest Pride outfits! We want to be seen.

Please RSVP on the Event Page to ensure a proper headcount. We are in touch with the polling location and will let them know how many to expect so they can request more voting machines to accommodate the hopefully massive crowd.
We are still in the middle of a pandemic. Wear a mask and practice social distancing while in line!
Absolutely no electioneering (political shirts or signs) is allowed within 100 feet of the polling location
