It's not too late to be part of the #BlueWave.
Early voting started strong with more than 5,300 Travis County Democrats showing up at the polls on the first day. We more than doubled our showing from the last mid-term election in 2014!
Day two numbers revealed a building trend. According to Bruce Elfant, Travis County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar, early voting in Travis County looks more like a presidential year than a gubernatorial year. And it's happening all over the state, Democrats are turning out.
Early voting stats from Travis County, through Day 2 of Early Voting.
In 2018, we're fired up. We’re fired up about telling the Government who we want to represent us. I can confidently say that we’re letting our representatives know with gusto.
For those of you who haven’t voted just yet, don’t worry. There is still time to vote and we need you to keep building this #BlueWave. Early voting continues until Texas Independence Day (March 2nd) and on Election Day (March 6th). Polls are open this weekend, too.
Don’t know who to vote for? We got you covered. Click on the “primary” link at the top of this website. On that page, you’ll find links to the Southwest Austin candidates’ websites. Or, download a cheat sheet of all of the contested races in our area. Fill it out and take it to the polls with you. (Phones are prohibited by state law in the voting booth.)
You can do this. Build the wave. Go and vote, whether it be February 26th, March 2nd, or some day in between. Here's a list of early voting locations. Then, go ahead and post a selfie of your BAD self with your sticker and tag us @BlueActionDems.
