Many people are taking advantage of early voting.
Among those who casted their ballot Saturday is the first African-American woman to run for Governor of Texas.
Lisa Fritsch has a history of being a conservative voice on radio, print and television.
She is also the author of "Obama, Tea Parties, & God."
Fritsch says she is running on the platform of economic opportunity and growth for all Texans, address the more than 18 percent of Texans living in poverty, education and proper immigration reform.
She calls herself an unlikely candidate but strongly believes in serving at the right time and for the right calling.
"The reason it's historic for me is actually because it's such an uphill battle. It's really the first time that someone has run for an office of this stature as a citizens candidate. As someone who is trying to break down the system of the status quo and make a difference for all Texans. Bottom up and top down," says Lisa Fritsch, Republican Gubernatorial Candidate.
Fritsch says she decided to throw her hat in the ring after finding out Wendy Davis was running.
