Where To Vote Today

Here are ways to find your polling place. Today, you must vote in your own precinct; the early-voting places are not available. You must be registered to vote, though if your card has not arrived, you can vote on your current and correct driver's license. (A lot of us have not received our cards, which is why we need Sue Schechter (D) as county clerk.)

Voting in a party primary registers you with that party. As ironic as that seems, I am now a registered Democrat for at least an election cycle. For the ambivalent among us, that is the price we pay to have any electoral influence at all in Texas. Of course, nothing prevents you from voting in the GOP primary and doing a bit of monkeywrenching; you can damned well bet they do it. If you're like me, your primary objection (heh) is to the national Democratic Party. For me, it's worth the registration just to vote for local candidates I know and trust. Obama in 2012? probably not, but we'll see.

Swallow hard and vote. You never know whether it has an effect. And you never know if this will be the last time you get to vote. Just do it.
