HOUSTON, TX – The Democrats and Republicans are probably pointing the finger at each other today for the rain because everyone knows that rain drains the polls of voters. How poetic that the rain would cause runoff on the very day of the primary runoff elections.

“Yes, the rain is going to slow things down; but it’s not a long ballot, we’re going process you quickly and you’re going to be on your way,” according to Stan Stanart, Harris County Clerk.

“Considering that this is a primary runoff, there probably aren’t going to be very many people voting in this election to begin with,” said Vera Ranneft who voted today.

No different from the March elections when under 3% of democrats and only 7% of republicans voted in Harris County, that too was a cold and bitter day.

Unlike the wicked Witch of the West, even heavy rain isn’t going to melt the diehards who want to cast their vote.

“It’s your voice, it’s your government and if you don’t vote, you can’t complain,” added Stanart.
