Second, it's time to whip out that well-worn phrase, "Vote early, vote often!" By often, of course, we mean "at any occasion during which it is legal to vote once." This is one of those occasions: Early voting in Harris County, and other metro areas in Texas, begins right now, 7 am on 20 October, for this year's midterm general election.
I work for a living, but I plan to make appearances after 5 pm during next week, at a few different early voting locations inside Loop 610. I will also be out & about on the weekend. See y'all at the polls.
UPDATE: The official 2014 League of Women Voters Guide is available as a free download. Also, early voting hours during the first five days are 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Saturday is from 7 am to 7 pm; Sunday, 1 to 6 pm. This is not widely known!
