The Early-Voting Rush Isn't Everywhere
Early voting totals continue to astound political watchers in Harris County -- more than 314,000 folks have already gone to the polls, more than twice the pace of 2004.
That's resulted in lots of lines...but not everywhere.
County clerk spokesman Hector DeLeon says that a third of the early-voting locations have accounted for only 18 percent of the vote.
