These Kids Will Vote

In Texas early voting has started in some counties. More than 50 miles from Houston students of Prarie View A&M had a problem. The county (Waller) decided that the only early voting location would be at the county seat and they would only provide 2 voting machines.

Texas state law says that any person in line at the close of voting (7pm) may be allowed to cast a vote.

These kids are walking almost 10 miles to the county seat, thousands of them, and they will stand in line, and vote 2 at a time, until they have all voted, til' morning if they have to.
