It's your civic duty to get out and vote and on Wednesday U.S. Senator John Cornyn paid a visit to the Basin to take that idea one step further.
The Senator is urging West Texans to head to the polls right now for early voting.
Cornyn also pointed to a hotly contested Presidential race along with a few races affecting West Texas for getting out the vote.
You can still vote early until this Friday.
Senator Cornyn as you'd expect is endorsing John McCain for President, and Cornyn says he has run his campaign on his strong record of representing Texas values in the Senate.
