We are now one month away from Election Day and this year voters have more ways to cast their ballot and more time to do so. With the COVID-19 pandemic lessening but still present around the country, many states have made it safer and easier for people to vote. That is true in Texas where major safety steps have been taken at the polls and drive up voting has been implemented in some areas.
