HOUSTON -- Harris County set a new record Monday for voting during the first day of Early Voting in person. The Chief Election Officer of the County, Stan Stanart, said 47,093 people voted, shattering the November 2008 first day total of 39,201.

“We had a record breaking first day of Early Voting,” said County Clerk Stanart. “It is obvious that our message encouraging voters to vote early and avoid the issues of determining their Election Day voting location has been heard.”

Due to redistricting, the County Clerk’s office estimates about 20 percent of the Election Day polling locations for Harris County voters have changed. Voters are encouraged to vote at any of the 37 early voting locations.

4. Yes, that is correct :) In 2008....


In 2008 Obama won the majority of the largest cities/counties in Texas: Austin/Travis, Dallas/Dallas, Houston/Harris, El Paso, San Antonio, etc.
McCain won Ft. Worth/Tarrant.

Obama over 3.5 million votes from Texans
McCain under 4.5 million

I'm hoping President gets closer to 4M this year
