If you’re worried about standing in line when you go to vote in Galveston County, don’t be.

Turnout for early voting in the Nov. 2 election was dismal — although perhaps not surprising, given typical turnout during mostly local off-year elections.

Note to Gina Smith: there’s not a lot of room running to the right of Randy Weber.

Actually there is not any difference between her and Randy's stance.on issues Running against an incumbent will be difficult.

The Democrat candidates are steering clear of the mistakes made by Adrienne Bell who was a local AOC clone on issues. However each is cut from the same cloth.

Re: Constitutional Amendments

"The total represents just 1.6 percent of the 229,312 registered county voters.

Every registered voter in the county can cast a ballot in this election because of the eight constitutional amendments on the ballot."

So here we go once again to amend the Texas Constitution by a slim % of voters. Our Legislators should spend effective time rewording the Constitutional Articles and Sections to be more like policy language and not procedural language. Take the time to compare the proposed amendments with the actual words of the current Constitution. Doing so, should give us a confirmation to ask them to "re-do" all of them. Just my thoughts.
