7am to 7pm Early Voting This Week

Early Voting is in effect, February 26 thru March 2, 2018, from 7AM to 7PM. That’s this week, folks. Find an early voting location near you and get it done before Primary Election Day, March 6, where you’ll only get to vote in your neighborhood polling location. The easiest thing to do is get your sample ballot here, then vote the Stace Slate.

Compared to 2014, folks seem to be flocking to the Democratic Primary. At this moment, Democrats are neck-and-neck with the other side as far as participation goes. There were reports last week that a good chunk of them were first-time Democratic Primary voters. And this makes me wonder whether some of the political mail that has gone out has actually been effective, as this group probably didn’t get any of it since they hadn’t voted in a Primary before.

Of course, some of these “new” voters have been caught not knowing how primaries work. Or how lack of progress on Democratic issues isn’t necessarily the fault of a Den incumbent when said incumbent is part of a minority in whatever lawmaking body they are serving. It’s earned these folks some ridicule from some of the local pros, but then I remember that the local pros aren’t big fans of political education during the election off-season. Then, again, there’s enough blame to go all around, including personal responsibility.

Anyway, be an informed voter. If you want to find more info on candidates, the League of Women Voters Houston has their voter guide online. In two languages!

Scenes From Early Voting 2016

It’s been a while, but I’m getting into this whole political thing, again. I did my part and voted at Tracy Gee Center–it only took 35 minutes. If you’re wondering, #ImWithFlo and I voted a straight Democratic ticket. Some may say there might be some good judges on the other side, but for the life of me, I’ll never understand why anyone would want to be in the Party of Trump, and then expect to be considered impartial. So, I voted a straight “D” ticket, except for a couple of races in which I unclicked the Dems and left it blank.

Here are a few pics from the Early Voting Kick-Off at West Gray Center. VOTE EARLY! More pics here.
