Moni's 2016 POTUS Election Musing
I love early voting because I can do so on my schedule and I'm not stuck waiting until November 8 when I already know who I'm voting for. Another 14 days or so of campaign commercials and speeches isn't going to change my mind.
40 minutes in line, and only five minutes to run through the ballot vote, check my work and press the SEND button on the E-Vote machine to handle my electoral business.
Houston GLBT Caucus Card.
I voted for the person I endorsed for president on these TransGriot electronic pages.
This is another historic election I have been pleased and proud to participate in. We set a first day early voting record in Harris County, so if you want to avoid the lines on November 8, better go now.
I was pleased that for the first time in my eligible voting life (my first election was the 1980 Carter-Reagan one) , I've had an opportunity to cast a ballot in a battleground state.
The fact the battleground state in question is my home state of Texas makes it that much sweeter and warms my political heart.
Once again, early voting in Texas started today and will continue until November 4. if the record turnout persists, may wish to do what I did and vote early as well.
The direction of this country for the next four years and beyond depends on it.
