March 3 is the date you want to circle on your 2020 calendar if you wish to go handle your election business on primary election day. But for those of you like myself who already have your minds made up and nothing is going to change it by waiting aonther week or so, early voting for the Texas primary starts tomorrow.
The dates for Texas early voting are February 18-February 28. In Harris County, you can vote at any voting center inside the county from 7 AM-7 PM CST. On ‘Souls To The Polls Day’, Sunday February 23. the polls will be open from 1-6 PM CST
There’s also a new twist happening in this Texas primary election besides the fact the straight ticket voting option won’t be on the ballot no thanks to our Texas GOP legislators. In Harris County, Democratic and Republican primary election participants will be doing so from the same voting centers.
And if you’re wondering who to vote for on the Democratic side, Ihave some suggestions.
This is a prinary election ballot, so it will be a long one, especially in Harris County.
Vote the enitre ballor from POTUS to dog catcher, because there are good candidates wanting and needing your votes in races on that other end of the ballot as well, and those races are jsut as important as the presidential contest is.
Texas judicial benches, Texas State Board of Education, those offices are on the ballot and they matter along with the state lege races. Turning this state blue starts with you, the voters taking part in this and every election. .
The best part of early voting is that you choose when, whare and what time to do so, as long as you cast those ballots from Febraury 18-28 . After those dates, you’ll have to wait until the March 3 Election Day.
For those of you who aren’t registered to vote for the primary, there’s still time for you to get busy and get registered for the May runoff and general election on November 3. To be eligible to vote in the May runoff election, you must be registered by April 2. Final date to get registered for the general election in November is October 5
But first up is the primary elections what will play a major role in determining what peeeps are on your ballot in November So tke some time out of your busy schedule to handle your electoral business.
