Several dozen people gathered at Oak Lawn Branch of the Dallas Public Library on Oct. 11 to canvass the neighborhood for gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. LGBT groups across Texas met to campaign at the same time to celebrate National Coming Out Day.
Lindsey Clark, a political field organizer for Human Rights Campaign sent to Texas to work with the Davis campaign, told the group the job is get people to make plans to early vote.
Early voting begins on Oct. 20 and runs through Oct. 31. The closest early voting locations to Oak Lawn are at the Dallas County Records Building downtown and Grauwyler Recreation Center on Harry Hines Boulevard. In Oak Cliff, early voting takes place at the Dallas County Sub-Courthouse on Beckley Avenue.
