Early voting
 
Was off work today and had errands to run, haircut, feed store etc and thought I should go vote now instead of later

There was a line out the door of folks waiting to vote

I sure hope they were all Republican minded and showing up in force to stop the nonsense known as Democrats
Most folks I saw were probably voting R

They said there have been lots of people coming out to vote ;)b

The first day smashed the previous record in 2010 in Harris County. However, like you said there is no way to know for sure who is voting for who. The place I was at there were lots of Beto supporters.

Kingfisher789 10-23-2018 09:42 PM

I voted this morning. Seemed crowded but the room was smaller than in the past

AlaskaFlyerFan 10-23-2018 09:47 PM

It was nice to see the voting line longer than the lottery ticket line.

MQ32Shooter 10-23-2018 09:52 PM

I went to the poll about 8:50 and walked right in. Tons of cars in the parking lot with people with signs and tailgating, but no body inside but the workers.

Well if you vote right, err left as the case may be, you get free stuff, so thatís sorta like winning the lotto

They had the fire marshal on hand at City Hall due to the crowds all day yesterday and today.

Robertt 10-23-2018 10:37 PM

I voted Monday at 11am as soon as it opened. Got there about 10:45 and had about 8 people in front of me. By 11 they were out the door behind me.

Mike Javi Cooper 10-24-2018 07:07 AM

I voted Tuesday in Waco at 11 am. It took 35 minutes waiting in line... the crowd was mostly folks older than me and kids in their 30's with the old folks out numbering the kids by at least half..

GOP shows new strength in early voting, as midterm fight for control tightens

Gonna go vote today in Wilson County.

I dont know why, just watched ABC news and they said Trump is a habitual liar and the dems will win the house, and according to ABC the 5000 people headed this way thru Mexico will have free access to the cross the border because the military cannot do anything except show a presence. And with the Dems winning the house they will not give Trump any authority to use the military for security on the border.:rolleyes:

WItoTX 10-24-2018 07:23 AM

Voted yesterday in Energy Corridor in Houston. If I had to judge based on appearances, I would say it was a 50-50 split on R's and D's in line. Lots of people with their voter cards for some reason, I have never seen that before. My guess is lots of people voting for the first time since most of them didn't know where to stand or how the process works when walking up to the poll workers, or that they don't need to bring their voter card.

Grndchecker 10-24-2018 07:23 AM

I plan to go Friday.

jlinville 10-24-2018 07:38 AM

I voted in Noonday on Monday. It took me right at an hour. I've never seen that many people there!

Stykbow 10-24-2018 07:38 AM

Everyone really needs to get out there and vote if we don't want the 7000 democrats on the march in Mexico, to come over here.

nando 10-24-2018 08:06 AM

Voted early yesterday.

lnester 10-24-2018 08:10 AM

More importantly, grab 2 friends and go vote. We gotta turn out and continue Making America Great Again!

friscopaint 10-24-2018 08:21 AM

We voted yesterday, straight R, kids doing the same today

Do voters tend to spontaneously combust? :)

Wife texted me yesterday and said it was an hour wait in line in Wilson county. I am stuck at the rancho until the water goes down, hopefully by Friday I can vote.

haas0311 10-24-2018 04:10 PM

Got it done today!! Beto all the way.....
























Back to El Paso!! Penche Beto, [emoji23] [emoji23][emoji23]

Voted today at 2:00. Fairly crowded but not much of a wait. Looked like a lot of like minded voters.

Bdub25 10-24-2018 04:20 PM

Voted today at lunch in San Patricio County (Odem). It only took 10 minutes.

TSFiredog 10-24-2018 04:23 PM

Voted yesterday in North Montgomery County 1:30 min, poll workers said it was the same on monday. Go Red!

Assuming you went downtown Tyler to vote? I work in the annex and just got around to voting a few minutes ago. Only time I have seen it slow down so I slipped in. Monday 5K votes casted compared to 2014 with 1500, it has been crazy.

AgHntr10 10-24-2018 04:25 PM

wife and I went last night about 15 minutes before they closed and had the place to ourselves.

Ferg 10-24-2018 04:33 PM

just voted this afternoon, 20 people in line

brrdnk 10-24-2018 04:36 PM

This should make everyone want to go vote.

I went at 10:15 this morning in the rain, figured that would scare people away. Was a pretty good line, took maybe 20 minutes. This is the first time in over 20 years that I voted in Dallas county so maybe it is the norm. I miss voting in Bells, could go the actual election day and not wait in a line.

Same place today took 15 minutes.

bps3040 10-24-2018 04:45 PM

Voted today, over an hour wait.

beefiedoubleoh 10-24-2018 04:45 PM

3rd day in a row to skip. Parking lot at the library was full which mean 1hr+ wait. Try again tomorrow...

muzzlebrake 10-24-2018 05:42 PM

No line to speak off when I voted yesterday @ 11:30am. Maybe 10 people voting. More workers in there than voters. Euless Public Library

CEO 10-25-2018 09:48 AM

Went this morning and walked right in. Beto folks had a little tent set up with 4 or 5 people waving signs in the parking lot.

muzzlebrake 10-25-2018 10:17 AM

Hard to believe any poll numbers since conservatives are too busy working a job to answer phones gathering poll data. I know I hit the FU button on my phone at least 6 or 7 times a day now.

C-dubyah 10-25-2018 10:21 AM

I voted in Houston and it was my first time to vote. I too saw many people with their voter cards for some reason. I will admit that it is a bit nerve racking to vote your first time and wondering if you're going to do something stupid. But everything went smooth and I voted Republican so I guess I didn't do anything stupid after all.

Traildust 10-25-2018 10:34 AM

Today should be easier....all the dems are at home waiting on the welfare check to hit the mailbox.

Rubi513 10-25-2018 10:40 AM

Voted yesterday!

Puggy625 10-25-2018 11:27 AM

In and out less than 5 minutes today in Rockwall County. Did my part to send Robert packing........back to El Paso.

Where are you finding this?

OldRiverRat 10-25-2018 02:14 PM

heard Rush going through all the latest polling data during lunch today. Cruz was plus 7% down to 5% now.

brokeno 10-25-2018 02:25 PM

I have a friend who is a cop in San Antionio and he said that little boy Castro told the police chief not to patrol any polling places because that makes the voters nervous about going to vote. Why would they be nervous if everything was up and up. Must be something illegal about what's going on or probably the voters are illegals.

Lines again today. I don't know when I'll get to vote.

Man 10-25-2018 05:44 PM

I'm going to have to wait next week when the polling stays open till 7pm. Can't wait to cast my vote.

Iehooligan11b 10-25-2018 05:48 PM

I went today around 11. Walked right in didn’t wait at all. The whole front lawn of the county Annex was covered in Beto signs. Like literally over a hundred probably. And its not a big spot. Didn’t see one Cruz sign out there.

lunatic'hunter 10-25-2018 08:42 PM

Voted Cruz (R) today in Sour Lake Texas. Saw a sign that read, "Republicans that don't vote, elect democrats"
