Early Voting here in Houston ended yesterday. Commentary went to vote and they nearly didn't let me vote. The computer screen flashed my full name and said that I was a disqualified voter. I thought someone was pulling a fast one on me - like someone that doesn't like me filling out a mail ballot application and having it sent to Las Vegas or Idaho. The chief judge called the county elections department and squared things away - finally got to vote. They never fully explained why I was temporarily disqualified. Made me wonder if a less informed voter just would have just walked away and not voted.
