Woohoo, I early voted in Texas!!!!

Straight Democratic ticket. Doing my part to help turn Texas blue. Got there at 7:45, I was number 3 in line, but by the time I voted the line was out the door. Polls opened in Ft. Worth at 8am, but over in Dallas they opened at 7am.

7. Same here

 

And at the courthouse where I voted, there were a ton of signs. In those signs I counted 3 Hillary ones. RUMP signs....absolutely zero.
It's usually fairly Republican with a decent amount of Democrats, mainly due to the Hispanic influx in the area.

There was no line, but a good crowd inside voting. No problems other than being told to quiet or turn off any cell phones, which I did.

15. Dallas local news just said this morning voting was heavy &

they expect over 50% to vote early.
Also Dallas county has 45 pollingsites open. That is up from 25 last election.

Could reflect the rapid growth of the city/county. But it good news all around.

13. My whole extended family is in Texas and they're all Democrats!

I'm in Colorado, and I'm doing my part to hold down the fort for the Dems here. Also, both my kids will vote in their first ever presidential election, so we doubled our family voting power this year! I love living in a swing state!

Of course, Texas would be the mother of all swing states!
