AUSTIN (KXAN) — University of Texas students camped out on the ground since last night to be among the first in line to vote in the Texas primary election.
March 1 begins the Texas primary election, however Austinites are already lining up for early voting.
It’s somewhat of a tradition on UT campus. Students line up and camp out overnight to be the first ones at the polls, which open at 7:00 a.m. Students have been waiting to cast their ballots since 10 p.m. the night before.
On the ballot is the presidential race. Both the Democratic and Republican parties have several contested races; the winners will go on to represent their respective party in the general election in November.
Polls are located on UT campus at the Flawn Academic Center, located on 2400 Inner Campus Drive. Visit the Travis County website to see a full map of where you can early vote.
