Default 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
