AUSTIN, Texas — In an effort to increase voter turnout among the LGBTQ+ community, organizers hosted a "Pride at the Polls" event.
"If you are a first-time voter, know that you will be amongst your peers in line. Voting can seem daunting sometimes, especially if it's your first time, but you belong at the polls," organizers said on Facebook.
