Early Voting Started

Early voting has started in most states including my home state of Texas.  It can be easy to skip mid term elections because they don't seem as important as voting for your favorite presidential candidate.  However, if you skip the midterms you might miss voting on an important bond, change in state law, or for a candidate you might later be sorry didn't win.  I am picking up my local voting guide today.  I hope you will do the same.
