The Days Seem So Long

 


On the first day of early voting, October 13, 2020, there were a total of 4,056 votes cast.  People posted on social media photos of voters lined up at the Laredo Fire Department building on Del Mar and at the City Hall Annex.  While it's a decent number, it doesn't compare to the record-breaking counts that were seen in other Texas cities, such as Houston.  

Joe Biden has a double-digit lead in polls, over Donald the con artist.  Texas may be in play.  If the current White House occupant lost Texas, there would be no path to victory, whatsoever.  

19 days to go until the General Election.  There is a pandemic going on.  Flu season is upon us.  (Already got my flu shot.)  And a mediocre female judge is on the verge of being installed to the Supreme Court, to fill the position left vacant by Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  Crazy times. 

UPDATE: October 31, 2020 (Saturday)

Yesterday was the last day of early voting in Texas.  A total of 54,000 votes were cast in Webb County during early voting.  Webb has almost 138,000 registered voters.  Texas overall has seen record turnout; and younger voters, between the ages of 18 and 29, are fueling the current surge.  The 2nd/3rd wave of the Coronavirus pandemic is in progress, so it's impressive to see people standing in line, for hours in some cities, to cast their vote.
