Early voting for the March 3 Super Tuesday primary begins Tuesday, Feb. 18, the day after the President's Day holiday.

Across the state early voting will run until Friday, Feb. 28, with early voting taking place over the weekend as well at most locations (some churches will not be open on Sunday, Feb. 23).

In Dallas County on Tuesday, some early voters got their first look at new upgrades rolled out this fall. For the first time, digital touchscreens replaced a paper ballot interface and voters can now vote at any location in the county, not just an assigned precinct.

“That actually helped me vote because my previous address is not the same as my address now, but I was still able to vote in Dallas County," voter John Hopper said.

Early voting for the March 3 primary is set to begin in Tarrant County.

Voters who spoke to NBC 5 said they also found the touchscreen interface to be convenient and easy.

“I thought it went very well, very simple, the touch screens are very self explanatory," voter Cal Chaney said.
