We hear the numbers of Texans taking part in early voting are through the roof. So what’s getting people to cast their ballots early?
We asked Dr. Allan Saxe at UT Arlington about it and he says it’s simple. This election has people angry and they want to make a statement.
He did point on that unlike past years, it’s not just conservative voters casting ballots early saying there is a lot of enthusiasm on both sides.
Saxe adds the local issues in communities across the state are important and that draws voters too.
It’s not just in Texas. Early voting numbers have been skyrocketing across the nation.
