Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

This happened in Austin as well,

for the city council/mayoral race they had moved the polling location (without any kind of prior written warning) and provided the INCORRECT ADDRESS and Location Name on the flier for the new location (but the Google map was correct). I had voted early, so I didn't run into this problem. My wife knew that the new address was incorrect and called the elections board (or precinct commissioner?) to complain.

When I voted (early again) in the Democratic Primary, I suddenly realized that our District had indeed changed and Lloyd Doggett was no longer a possible choice to be my Representative. I'm suddenly in Lamar Smith's district. I'm furious.

The redistricting maps have been have been changed multiple times, which is part of the reason that our Primaries were delayed. Trying to find the accurate map online was a challenge, and I kind of know where to look, and have been paying attention to this issue. Most people won't even notice, and by the time they do, there is nothing to be done.
