"Right now, you can expect the unexpected," says Dorothy Kennedy, Lubbock Elections Administrator. That's the sentiment at the elections office because election day turn-out is unpredictable. "Normally what happens is you have the same amount that voted early will show up and be right there on election day. We could possibly have 57,000 people come to vote on election day," explains Kennedy.

The polls open at seven in the morning and they close at seven in the evening. But as long as you're in line by 7 p.m., you'll still be able to vote.
