DALLAS, TEXAS (KXAS) - There may be a higher turn out at the polls this fall due to a tour taken by Secretary of State Nandita Berry.

Berry is touring 11 universities across Texas this week to encourage young voters to get to the polls on Election Day.

Berry, who kicked off her tour Monday in Lubbock, said the primary focus is to make sure young voters understand the voting process so that they aren't intimidated or afraid to voice their opinion.

The next statewide election, which includes the race for governor between Republican Greg Abbott and Democrat Wendy Davis, will be held Nov. 4.
