Time to Vote!

It's time to vote! For those of you who live in Texas, and Harris County specifically, early voting has begun. You can find a map to an early voting place here.

If you vote on Election Day (Tuesday, March 2), you can find your voting place here.

This is a Primary, so you'll have to choose EITHER to vote in the Democratic Primary OR the Republican Primary.
