While mail-in ballot numbers are up, the in-person early voters have not yet shown up in the numbers we need to turn Texas blue. It's all hands on deck time -- time to vote if you haven't and then knock on doors and make phone calls!
We've highlighted some of the exceptional Democratic candidates on the ballot for voters in the Clear Lake area in the link to the Election 2014 Democratic Reporter shown above.
Early voting begins Monday, Oct. 20 and continues until Friday, Oct. 31. We highly recommend early voting, because you can vote at any of the early voting locations within the county during that time. For Clear Lake area voters, the closest sites are the Freeman Branch Library at 16616 Diana Ln., Houston 77062 or the IBEW Hall #66 at 4345 Allen Genoa Rd., Pasadena 77504. On Election Day, Nov. 4, voting must be at your specific precinct polling place. For details on early voting and Election Day locations, see harrisvotes.com.
