(Seguin) -- If you want to avoid any risk of standing in a long line at Tuesday's election polls, then today is the last day to vote early. Several federal and statewide races including the position of Texas Governor will be on the ballot for the Nov. 4 General Election.
Local races also include Guadalupe County, the City of Seguin, City of Cibolo, City of Schertz, the Seguin Independent School District and the Green Valley Special Utility District.
Guadalupe County Election's Administrator Sue Basham says so far, the two week early voting period has helped to draw in a steady crowd. However, as always, she would love to see even more individuals come out and exercise their right to vote.
"It's not near as large as a presidential election would be of course, but I think we're doing pretty good. We've been steady in Schertz and Seguin. I would always like a lot bigger turnout for everyone to come out and vote. It's going to be a low voter turnout as usual, but at least, it’s been steady. For a gubernatorial election, this is about normal," said Basham.
Basham says there really is the convenience of getting your vote in early.
"They need to go out to one of our five locations that we have around the county. It is the last day of early voting and they can go to any of those five locations to vote regardless of what precinct they are in. So if they wait until Tuesday to vote, then they're going to have to go to their election day polling location," said Basham.
Early voting locations include the Seguin Election's Office, Grace Memorial Church, the Central Texas Technology Center, the Schertz Elections Office (Annex) and the New Berlin Community Center. Polls will be open Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
