Early Voting has begun in Texas for the September 13 constitutional election. Texans need no excuse to vote early. “Harris County”:http://www.harrisvotes.org/earlyvinfo.htm polling places are open, as are “Travis County”:http://www.co.travis.tx.us/county_clerk/election/early.asp polls. If you’re in a different county, I hit on the elections pages for both Harris and Travis County by “Googling”:http://www.google.com “early voting Texas (name of county) county”.

If you’re not registered to vote, shame on you. The Texas Secretary of State’s got a “list”:http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/voter/votregduties.shtml of all the county voter registration clerks, and a “request form”:http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/voter/reqvr.shtml for the voter registration form.

If you’re not a Texan … Well, shame on you too.

A friend sent me this link to the non-partisan House Research Organization in the Texas House of Representatives for information on the 22 proposed amendments.

Early Voting Update

Made my way to the polling place closest to my office over lunch. Two parking places reserved up front, next to the handicapped spots, one of them empty. Six volunteers staffing the poll, 12 e-slate voting machines, no waiting. Cast my ballot into the unverifiable ether, and was out of there and on my way to Whataburger to celebrate all that is Texas in about 10 minutes.

The polling place had registration cards, but you can’t vote (in Harris County, at least) unless you’ve registered 30 days ahead of the election.
