SHERMAN, Tex. -- Early voting went well Texoma’s North Texas counties. Ryan Loyd begins our election team coverage from Sherman.

Many people worried that as soon as the snow started to fall, the primaries in North Texas would fail, but that hasn't been the case at all.

The snow and ice couldn't keep Marsha Gaddis away from the polls.

"I’m very excited, this is exciting. I'm out here showing my support," Gaddis said.

This election year has been hotly contested, but on the biggest day for the Democratic presidential candidates’ especially-- the Texas and Ohio Primaries -- a cold snap moved through, bringing several inches of snow, but it's not giving voters a reason not to vote.

"There are several good candidates. We need a change," voter Doug Chamberlain says.

With each candidate making his, or her, message known, Texomans are also making their choice known, and those who aren't as eager to share believe voters will make the right choice to nominate the best man, or woman, to represent their party in November.

We talked with Clyde Siebman from the Grayson County Repubicans Tuesday morning, who says this is a fascinating election year, and that is really what is driving voters to the polls. The fact that many voters will have the chance to vote twice in what is known as a caucus that takes place after the polls close is also exciting to many voters.

By nightfall, we could very well know who the nominees for president will be.

    Yes, the weather was rough this morning, but as the snow melted, so did another excuse not to vote. Whoever folks support, I hope they went & exercised their civic duty. If you didn't because you dodn't feel like it, your opinion means zip. Changes aren't made by sitting around doing nothing.
