Democratic early voting surged across Texas in 2018 Primary

Democratic Party Set To Show Its Force In Nation's First 2018 Primary

For Republicans, the early vote turnout pace is modeling past past midterm primaries.

Voters will be required to produce identification to cast their ballots. At this point, as the following chart indicates, Republican incumbents stand to face more competition than their Democratic counterparts from two key sources. To truly make your voice heard, you can not wait until November 6.

A congressman who has launched a longshot bid to unseat Republican Sen.

The primary races could have national implications in both the House and the Senate come Election Day this November.

O'Rourke says the president has a lot to do with the energy among Democrats. It's annoying, I know, but that's because they don't want you to make your voice heard, so don't let them!

Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is up for his first re-election campaign as a member of the United States Senate, and he's facing a handful of primary challengers.

In most legislative elections in Florida, incumbents have an overwhelming advantage in fund-raising, a factor that more than any other decides the outcome of an election. In a state where guns are sometimes seen as a birthright, he argues for universal background checks and an assault weapons ban.

Another Republican voter, Rosa Magaña, says the answer to gun violence should be educational outreach and not weapons bans.

The reason for the shift doesn't rest primarily on the intelligence and commitment of the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, although many of them have been articulate and persuasive.

"Not as high as the state average actually, so it could have been better", Nueces County Clerk Kara Sands said. The only other time that's happened since 1996, the first year for which numbers are available, is 2008, when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton poured tons of money into the state during their highly competitive presidential primary. Those running for County Commissioner Precinct 4 on the Republican ticket are Marvin Dawson, Ernesto Elizardo, Aaron Thompson and Howard Moorehead. Sixty-year-old Laura Smith said Tuesday that she backs Trump because he has "guts", isn't afraid and is a strong leader. "Democrats have been motivated by their opposition to Donald Trump".

On the GOP side, Ryan foundthat first-time primary voters only made up about 11 percent of the early vote share, which is a dip from the 2014 midterm primaries.

Nueces County Democrats showed up their Republican rivals by more than 2,000 votes during the two-week early voting period; but overall, early voting numbers were low.

In what Democrats call Republicans' latest attempt to stymie a potential blue wave in Texas, the Dallas County Republican Party is trying to keep more than 120 Democratic contenders from making it onto the November ballot. The Democratic early voting more than tripled in 2018 with 3,556 compared to 1,156 in 2014.

From 7 a.m.to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Election Day locations will be open across the county, at polling locations in Tyler, Arp, Bullard, Flint, Hideaway, Lindale, Troup, Whitehouse and Winona.

Republicans have asked that 127 candidates be thrown off the March 6 primary ballot, and the Dallas County GOP has amended its suit to apply to the November general election because absentee ballots for the primary had already been mailed by the lawsuit's filing date. Democratic voting was up by 102 percent.

The Parkland massacre took place in Broward, by far the state's most Democratic county, where it has repeatedly proven hard to motivate Democrats to turn out in non-presidential election years in Florida.
