“Texas Democrats are fired up. We are breaking voting records in urban and suburban counties. In two days, Texas almost collected 2 million early votes, an all-time record.

“While the first two days of early voting were inspiring, there is still more work to be done and plenty of votes to be cast. Texans are looking for leaders who will end the coronavirus crisis, protect our healthcare, fight for racial justice, and build our economy back better.

“We are creating a movement. Make your plan to vote at MyTexasVotes.com.”
