Voting early? Here's where to go to avoid long lines

KHOU 11 reporter Tim Wetzel checks out where is best to vote early and avoid long lines.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - Record numbers of voters mean long lines at some polling places, but we found several voting locations with no lines at all on Wednesday.

The Harris County Public Health Building had little to no waits for much of the day.

However, the Multi-Service Center on West Gray was the busiest in Harris County. Some people waited in line more than 45 minutes just to get inside the doors.

Just 6 miles from there, the Ripley House Neighborhood Center on Navigation Boulevard in east Houston there wasn't a single person in line on Wednesday.

Other locations that haven't seen big crowds include, Alvin Baggett Community Center in Galena Park, the Hardy Senior Center in north Houston, the Houston Community College Southeast Campus, and the Lone Star College Creekside Campus in Tomball. 

Not only where, but when you vote also matters. Early morning, lunchtime, and just after 5 p.m. are the peak times, when voting locations are busiest.
