Today Is Election Day
A total of 185,000 voters participated in early voting last Friday. They voted for Houston's Mayor, city council members and for a county referendum. All of the candidates tried their best to be a winner.
In the mayoral race there are 17 candidates. If none of them do not exceed 50% of the vote, a runoff date will be held on December 9th and the voters will decide who will be the next mayor of Houston.
Currently, Senator Whitmire and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee are the frontrunners.
According to the latest survey, about 400 new residents move to Houston every day. Due to economic reasons, residents from California and the east coast continue to come to Texas.
In the meantime, we would like to appeal here to all Asian residents that we still need go to vote. This time the turnout is still very low which is a major obstacle for our political participation.
