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.

    I would like to encourage Sherman residents to vote "NO" on "Amendments to the City Charter" numbers "1" and "4". Here are my reasons: Amendment 1: While it does make sense to align City Council elections with other elections, the change at this time does not make sense. Making the change as written will extend terms of some current council member and the current mayor. If council members and the current mayor want this change to occur without conflict of interest then they should have it go into effect at some point in time when it will not impact the length of their own terms. Please vote "NO". Amendment 4: This amendment will increase pay to the mayor and council members for meetings they attend. This amendment does not make sense in the current economy. Please vote "NO".

    Early Voting started but Western and Eastern Grayson County citizens have to travel to Sherman to vote early. It is a 70 mile round trip for me. Last year, I asked the Democratic Chair to help get one day at Whitesbor. This Year, NO. I work as a Election Judge or altrnate or Clerk so there are people willing to help out. I answer nost questions with "we live in the Non Represented part of North Western Grayson County". Ask County Clerk Wilma Bush why Whitesbor and one City in Eastern GC when you get back to the Cout House.
