It's a big election year. I normally wait until election day to vote for the ceremony of it all, but it's 2020 and I can't help but think I really need to vote early. So, here is when early voting starts in Texas and Arkansas and where to early vote in Texarkana.

As I said, I have this feeling that if I wait until the actual Election Day November 3, with my luck, my car will break down or a tsunami will hit Texarkana.

In Texas, Governor Gregg Abbott announced earlier this summer that he extended early voting in Texas starting October 13 and going until October 30. If you live in Texarkana, Texas or anywhere in Bowie County you can early vote at these 3 locations in Texarkana, Texas:
