I heard that location had a lot of machines, but Tobin only had about 8 I think. I think it was busier the first few days of early voting.

Compared to Cody Library? That place was a nuthouse every early voting day I drove by.

When is the last day for early voting?
Can you vote at any location?

Early voting ends on Friday, 29 October.

And yes, you can vote early at any early voting location.

The Express-News publishes the cumulative number of voters at each early voting site during each day of early voting. Brookhollow has more than double the number of voters of any other site. I'm guessing that's because of the number of senior citizens living in that part of town.

IMO the problem at Cody is that it's a busy library branch, with a poorly-designed (narrow and approximately S-shaped) parking lot. It's a nightmare to navigate that lot on days without early voting.

My wife and I voted at the John Igo Library about an hour ago. There was a line but it moved fast, and we were out of there in about 20-25 minutes. The line was about the same length (10-12 people) as when we got there.

There appeared to be a steady stream of folks voting, which is encouraging!

Cheers! M2

I voted at UTSA today during lunch. There was no wait. Had to do my civic duty.

I looked up the cumulative early voter totals in today's Express-News. Brookhollow has processed a few hundred over 10,000 voters. Cody has processed 7,000+ voters. A few other EV sites had totals in the 6,000s. Most had handled fewer than 5,000.

TOTALLY agree on the parking! I got really lucky last time and found someone pulling out but still had a hard time getting in even in my little Celica. Anyway the wifey and I voted up so we've done our part and earned our next two years of complaining rights.

Does anyone else find all the campaign signs at the voting locations to be an eyesore? I don't think they should be allowed. About the only purpose they serve is that they make it easy to find the polling station, but otherwise I think they look horrible.
