The vote may not be until Valentine’s Day, but more HD 48 voters are showing early love for their candidates in the upcoming runoff election.
Early voting totals easily outpaced the votes cast ahead of the Jan. 17 special election, with 7,695 votes cast through Friday. The Travis County elections division recorded 4,584 ballots cast during last month’s early voting period.
More remarkably, the early voting period for the runoff ran only five days as opposed to the 11 days of voting prior to the January election.
One ends and another begins: Early voting for the HD106 special election between Katy Hubener and Kirk England. You folks up in Dallas know what to do.
Via Nate, here's a nice article on Barbara Radnofsky that (as he put it) is actually about Barbara Radnofsky. Whether it's because the Waco Trib believes that hearing what a candidate's opponent's spokesbeing says about that candidate is generaly uninformative or because they just couldn't get anyone from KBH's campaign to talk to them is beside the point. Check it out.
Also good to see: this Sherman Herald-Democrat article on what CD04's Ralph Hall and Glenn Melancon have to say about the Patriot Act and FISA. It's a straight up interview with both candidates, the kind that I wish I actually saw in the local paper once in awhile.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 13, 2006 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
