Do Democrats move around more than Repubs? interesting "glitch"
A couple of weeks ago, I tried to do my address change (voter registration) online.
I filled out the online form impeccably, but it kept telling me that I had errors and would not let me proceed. Glitches can and do happen. Right?
Anyway, I try again today. Same response from the online form. I decided to call the county registrar's office (staunch Republican) to see what was going on. A nice lady told me that the online form has a glitch and is not working. She told me to print out a form and mail it in.
Well, the deadline is tomorrow for new apps and address changes. I told her thanks and hung up.
This got me thinking: In Texas, most people who move around are Democrats and Independents. Republicans tend to stay in the same houses for decades at a time.
Anyway, just found it curious that such a "glitch" has been occurring for the last couple + weeks.

I'm going to go ahead and vote at my old precinct.

1. Postmarked the 10th is good enough.
Assuming the officials act on what they receive.
