Voters across Southeast Texas who did not cast an early ballot are heading to the polls today to beat the 7 p.m. deadline to have a voice in who will be our next president.

The election is down to the wire and turnout this morning was brisk at polling places throughout the area. As of 10 a.m. a quick survey of polling places found no long lines or other issues reported.

Southeast Texas joins voters across the country casting ballots today.  With the exception of two small towns in New Hampshire, both of which opened shortly after midnight, Vermont became the first state to kick off Election Day when it opened some polls as early as 5 a.m. ET.

Others began casting their ballots at 6 a.m. ET in Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, and the rest of New Hampshire.

Vice President Joe Biden cast his ballot Tuesday morning, shortly before 7:30 a.m. ET, at Alexis I. DuPont High School in Wilmington, Delaware, his home state. Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is schedule to vote in Belmont, Massachusetts around 8:30 a.m. ET.
