DRIPPING POLITICS: EARLY VOTING TURNOUT

We have no idea what the actual numbers were, but, wow. This Babbler waited in line 2 hours yesterday afternoon to vote and, at least per people who were working there yesterday, that "wasn't as bad as earlier in the day." Two Babblers went to the DSISD offices to vote around 6:30PM and they were guessing the wait was 1.5 hours at that time (they abandoned ship and plan to be in line first thing Saturday morning). The candidates were also there in force yesterday afternoon. We saw and spoke with Matt Young, Patrick Rose, and Debbie Brown. The Allen Bridges contingent was also out in force. There is voting tomorrow at the Belterra Clubhouse and again at the DSISD offices on Saturday. Download the Hays County early voting schedule here (PDF).
