College Station, TX (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
Early voting begins in Texas Monday, May 14, and so does the “Headed to the White House 2012 Straw Poll” at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University.
The straw poll will run through Election Day in November and is in conjunction with the “Headed to the White House” exhibit currently on display at the Bush Library and Museum.
Museum visitors will be able to cast a “vote” for either President Barack Obama, Democrat Party Candidate; Gov. Mitt Romney, Republican Party Candidate; or a third party candidate.
The poll is not scientific and does not represent an endorsement of any particular candidate or party by the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum or the National Archives and Records Administration.
The straw poll is meant to encourage greater voter participation, an important part of the Bush Library and Museum’s mission to promote civic literacy and education within the community.
