Good Morning, Texas!
Early voting started this morning here in Texas. I'm wondering how the polling stations are looking for people. If you have some commentary or thoughts, leave them here.
I'm in Central Texas, and I voted soon after the poll opened, in a grocery store. They have a "Mega Early Voting Center", but I chose a polling station closer to me. I didn't think they'd have much business there.
When I arrived shortly after nine, there were a few people, two or three, at the voting booths, but by the time my husband and I finished voting for the 45 races and 12 local ballot initiatives (which took a while), every voting booth was full and there was a line of people waiting to get checked in.
It makes me laugh a little how obvious it is who is a Republican poll worker and who is a Democrat. The Republicans are all male, white, middle to later-aged, button down shirts, and scowls on their faces. The Democrats are diverse and friendly. Are you surprised?
If you're in Texas and voted today, take a moment to comment on how your polling station looked today.
Have a great day!
