Early Voting, Vote By Mail Available For General Election

Texas Republicans, Democrats hope for strong primary turnout Early Texas Primary voting begins Tuesday

On Tuesday, more Democrats cast primary ballots than Republicans on the first day of early voting in the 15 Texas counties with the most registered voters.

COUNTY'S SECRET PRIMARY ELECTION There's an office on March 20th ballots with no candidates listed-and election authorities aren't trying to inform anyone about it.

Dallas County saw a massive spike in Democratic voters on the first day of early voting for the March primaries.

Early voting in the March 6 party primaries has started in Bandera County, and the League of Women Voters of Texas has compiled information that can help voters make more informed decisions about the dizzying number of candidates that will appear on their ballots.

"Under the winner-take-all system, USA citizens have been denied their constitutional right to an equal vote in Presidential elections", said BSF Chairman David Boies in a press release announcing the lawsuits.

As part of the state's voter ID law, those wanting to vote must provide a photo ID at the polls.

Shorey said the Republican National Committee and Republican party of Texas are sending reinforcements here because they say Democrats are targeting the area.

Winter Weather Advisory in Place Tomorrow, Mixed Precipitation Expected
Motorists should plan on slippery road conditions in the Advisory area, including during the morning commute on Wednesday . The advisory for the valley starts at 2am Thursday and goes through 10pm for a few inches of snow and slick roads.

"In a primary election, the Republican turnout is usually higher than the Democratic turnout", Jillson said.

Both counties, however, remain solidly red: Collin County turned out almost twice as many first-day Republicans than Democrats and the Denton GOP vote outpaced the Democrats by about 1,000.

Democrats in conservative Collin County say they're encouraged and excited about the Texas primary and the general election in November, reports CBS Dallas-Fort Worth. "If the Democrats are even with Republicans, even surpass them, that foretells a good year for Democrats".

Derek Ryan, an Austin-based political consultant and former research director of the Texas Republican Party, said Tuesday's result is no litmus test for the ultimate primary turnout.

In Harris County, home of Houston, just over 8,000 voters either cast ballots in person or by mail on Tuesday in the Democratic Primary.

Strong primary turnout for one party doesn't necessarily replicate itself in a general election.
