SHERMAN, TX - Polls are officially open in Texas for early voting today. Grayson County is reporting a better turn out than expected for the first day of voting, especially for a midterm election year.
State-wide the governor's race is taking center stage. While in Grayson County, the County Judge seat is one of the major positions on the ballot. People lined up in the Courthouse to vote say they too, were surprised by the turnout, but think it's important to get involved with government.
"Number one you need to feel like you're part of the system, I think that's important. And then number two, my wife always says, every vote counts," said Jerry Bylander.
Early voting continues in Texas until October 29th, and that's the day it starts in Oklahoma.
Oklahomans can cast early ballots October 29th, 30th, and November 1.
