ANALYSIS BY AUBREY R. TAYLOR
Don’t get me wrong, I like the fact the turnout in the Democratic Party Primary and Republican Party Primary in Harris County is up considerably. But my question is up, compared to what? No matter which candidates win or lose today, we need to do better than this on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. We can ill-afford to have elections as important as this being decided by only a handful of people.
WE MUST GO TO THE POLLS IN GREATER NUMBERS TODAY!
Not sure what I’m talking about? Look, we have over 3,410,740 people living in Harris County, Texas who are above the legal limit to vote in our elections. However, only 169,454 people chose to vote early for the Tuesday, March 6, 2018 Democratic and Republican primaries. So let me get this right -- we've chosen to allow a handful of people to decide who represents us as in the Governor’s mansion, State Legislature, and Court Houses across the Lone Star State?d Republican clients is to work…work…work.
