Early Voting in Texas

Early voting began in Texas yesterday for the Presidential and State Primary and will end on the 29th. In Harris County, Houston, turnout for the first day was 8 times that of the turnout in 2004. Regardless of the increase in participation for the first day of voting, we were able to walk right up to the voting booth, 30 minutes before closing! I STRONGLY recommend early voting this year unless you feel the need to stand in the voting line on March 4th. See ya at the caucus!

So get out there and vote!

For more information about voting in your Texas county, check these out:

Montgomery County, Harris County map (PDF), Harris County voting information, Ft. Bend County, Brazoria County, Galveston County, Waller County, Walker County, Liberty County.

If your county isn’t listed above, go here to find a phone number with information on early voting.

For our military members, here is info about absentee ballots for US Service Members from Texas.
