Fun Times Voting In Texas

001

I always feel odd voting Democrat during a Primary here in West Texas. This time was no different. The one old lady (there were 5 old ladies) asked which party I was voting for, I said “Democrat” the women there all looked at me a little funny and they handed me a code and the “I voted today” sticker.

I went to the polling booth, enter my number, I clearly see Ted Cruz on my ballot. I stepped back and said, “Um, excuse me. I have a Republican ballot, I wanted the Democrat ballot.” One of the women stepped back and said, “You want what?” She looked absolutely appalled. Every other person there agreed they heard me say, Democrat. After a few minutes, they fixed their mistake and off I went to my ballot.

I prefer to vote early if possible. I’d much rather deal with a few people giving my dirty liberal ass dirty looks than 40 of them. Not that it bothers me all that much. You would think it would, but I’ve never been one to really worry about what others think.

The last primary election I voted there was a little old man that looked like he wanted to beat me with his cane. I’m really lucky to be alive here. It’s not a real nice place to live, not at all. It is an oil town, so I suppose it’s to be expected.

After looking into the Democratic party a little further in my area, I have found that there are only around 50 members that participate in events. It turns out that Texas is one of the worst voting states, we rank 47 in voter turn-out.

The problem seems to most of the voters that show up for the election are Republican. So….we are a red state, I blame ignorance. The education does absolutely suck here and I say that from the heart.

I’ll continue to do my part and continue to vote, going to volunteer even, look at me doing shit. The people of Texas bitch the most about government, yet the majority does not even vote. You can’t bitch if you don’t vote I’m going to start calling people on it.

GET OUT AND VOTE TEXAS!

  1. It’s cool to see your unwavering support of the democratic party in a predominantly republican area. However, I do believe there are plenty of educated republicans in your area and state. Sure, they can be a bit dogmatic, but so can leftist liberals. But overall I think it’s awesome that you’re encouraging people to vote. That is one serious vice of this country. I’m going to be posting cool, somewhat opinionated stuff about the political spectrum if you’re interested and like to dabble!

      This is true. I do not deny there are intelligent people that vote republican or do not vote at all. I am interested, I’ll follow when you get it up and running.

    Last week, I asked Donald Trump supporters why they believe that the billionaire real-estate developer will treat them any better than the career politicians they mistrust.
