Election Update

While GoodFriends.blog goes around the world… It’s impossible to list all in the US, much less, for everyone. But, we did ge a general overview on Texas for Early voting. Neverthe less VOTE!

It’s too early to say if this year’s early voting numbers are a portent of historic voting levels in a Texas midterm election, or just robbing numbers from the regular general election date.

One thing is for certain – early voting is up this year is way up. And the number of registered voters is way up too – 15.8 million according to the Texas Secretary of State’s office.

The number of votes cast in just the first week of early voting this year has surpassed the entire early voting numbers for the 2014 Texas midterm election. If those numbers continue and the general election turnout is average, we could break the forty percent voter turnout mark this year, the first time that’s been done in a midterm general election in about two decades.

The unanswerable question at this point is whether Texas GOP voters are re-electing Cruz, or, is there an upset in the making by Democratic voters for O’Rourke?

Historically, early voting tends to favor Republican candidates in Texas, but O’Rourke has made a major push to register and motivate Hispanic and younger voters to cast ballots. We’ll know how successful that push was next Tuesday evening.

Early voting ends this Friday, Nov. 2.

Is God Sending You a Wake-up Call?


by Jack Zavada

We are his redeemed children now and no longer subject to his punishment. However, there’s another possibility we rarely consider.

“O” Stands for …


In the Alphabet ‘O’ stands for ‘Opportunity,’ which is absent in YESTERDAY, available in TODAY and Thrice in TOMORROW. Never Lose HOPE! Good Morning!

Opportunity of life
“The circumstances surrounding your birth are not as important as the opportunity to live life.” “If you make the opportunity. you’ll be the first in the position to take advantage of it.” Without trying and taking risks, you will miss great opportunities in life.” GoodReads
