It’s In Your Hands, Texas

More than half of the 3.3 million voters in Texas have already cast their ballots. While that number is a record breaker, there’s still more work to do! If you haven’t voted yet, what are you waiting for? The Lone Star State can make or break a candidate in this election. We should all be excited to participate in this primary election! I have a few tips if you’re one of the million or so people who have yet to vote:

1. Make sure you take either your Voter ID or a driver’s license.

2. Be prepared to wait in line for a while.

3. Don’t be surprised when you’re asked to claim a party – that’s how the Texas law works.

4. You don’t have to vote in every race if you don’t want to. (Some of the candidates probably don’t want me to tell you that. But if you skip a race because you either don’t know anything about the candidates or just don’t like them, that’s your prerogative).

5. Be patient.

Just getting to the polls and choosing your candidate(s) of choice is a big deal – don’t forget what a privilege that is!

So, you’ve cast your ballot. Now what? Well, if you want to get a little more involved, you can go to your precinct and take part in the caucus beginning at 7:15. That’s what they’re calling “The Texas Two Step” or your opportunity to vote twice.

We’ll have crews out covering the caucus (and, of course the candidates). Be nice to us out there! If you take some pictures, submit them to our slideshow. If you’ve participated in this election, we want to hear from you. Just post a comment on this fine little blog of ours. You’ll have plenty of time if you stay up late tonight and watch the returns as we get them on KSAT 12. We’ll be on TV and on the web. We hope to see (and hear) from you tonight!

    I’ve got to admit, I was a little disappointed that my polling place wasn’t bursting at the seams. I’m also a little miffed that there was nobody trying to court my vote (I wanted an interview).

    I guess this means, if you’re reading this blog and comment, go vote now before the lunch hour arrives.
