Lubbock Voters Head to the Polls

It's Election Day, and the polls opened at 7 a.m. in Lubbock County on Tuesday morning. If you see a blue voting flag in front of a church or business, that means you can vote at that location, even if it isn't your home precinct. 

This is the first presidential election for Lubbock County to use the voting center system. This election day, you can vote at any of the 50 polling places.

"It was pretty smooth, pretty smooth. Go in and show your driver's license. Go right on through the line, get your number, and get in there and vote," said voter Joey Kinser. 

By noon, about 9,000 people voted in Lubbock County. The elections office estimated there would be between 50 and 70 thousand votes cast in the county on Election Day.

Everyone NewsChannel 11 talked to thought the voting center system worked well. "I think it helps make it convenient for everybody. If you're not in your area all day long, and then have to come back and try to rush to make it in time to cast your ballot," said voter Landon Burge.
