Texas voters: Late primary didn't affect them

DALLAS (AP) - Texas voters are saying the late primary didn't influence their decision to cast a ballot, though they acknowledge the nearly three-month delay might play a role in expected low turnout.

There were small trickles of voters at several polling stations around the state Tuesday. Campaign workers holding signs outnumbered voters at a South Texas elementary school, and a polling official in Houston was barely disturbed as she read an electronic book.

Nona Batiste, a 65-year-old retired teacher voting in the Dallas suburb of Euless, said she would have voted whether the primary date had been early, late or "the day before the sun came up."

Tom Bass, who voted in Houston, said turnout might be low because a "change of the date is a change in habit."
