AUSTIN (KXAN) — Jay Jones of south Austin had something to prove to his two daughters.
Even after waiting more than three hours on the first day of early voting, Jones would make his voice heard.
“It’s as important as it gets,” Jones told KXAN. “I like football, baseball, American pie, but voting is what makes America, America.”
Jones was among tens of thousands of voters in Central Texas who, despite long lines and technical issues at several polling locations, cast a ballot in person on Tuesday, the first day of early voting in Texas.
