We are about one week into early voting across Texas, and turnouts have been sky high across the state, and country. That has been no different for Grimes County, according to City Manager of Navasota Brad Stafford.
“I have heard we have had a great response. In fact, I wanted to go early vote the other day, and got busy. But, I heard the lines were pretty long anyway. That is great, I mean, it is great to know we have folks that are actually getting out, and letting their voices be heard,” said Stafford during a recent episode of Grilling Stafford.
Records for early voting have been broken across the country, and Stafford, says, after years of disappointing returns on voting, he hopes to see the trend change this year.
“We hear it all the time. And every year, we complain that we do not have a very good turnout. So, I am hoping this year, we see a very good turnout,” Stafford said.
Early voting continues through the weekend. You can early vote in Anderson and Navasota, but you are able to vote at any polling location in Grimes County on actual Election Day, November 3rd.
