They are voting in huge numbers, or at least that’s what it appears around here.
I voted Monday at 10 am and I stood in line for a while. Just saw the line at the library and it is heavy.
What does it all mean? I don’t know but no signs of apathy, as reported in The Dallas Morning News:
North Texas voters appeared eager to cast ballots Monday, the first day of a two-week early voting period.Dallas County shattered first-day early voting records. Nearly 58,350 people voted, county officials said on Facebook. That’s compared with 32,512 voters in 2012 and 34,415 voters in 2008.Toni Pippins-Poole, county election administrator, said she wants to watch the trend as early voting continues. “Usually the first couple days are real busy, people are really anxious to get their vote cast,” she said. “Typically we know the last three days of early voting really will be a record turnout if we are looking at early voting already 10,000 votes past 2012.”
Let’s see how it goes.
