Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

I early voted in Fort Worth (Tarrant County).

Interesting experience. Different form of voting from years past. In years past, we voted on a single electronic machine with a wheel to turn pages, and buttons to push to vote.

First you get a legal size thermal card. You go vote on a machine that is easy and simpler to read and use. When you are ready to vote you insert the thermal card that prints out how you voted for all offices. The you can check the card for mistakes. Then you take it and insert it into a different machine which records your vote, but it keeps the card. No personal record to keep. That sucks.

I would still prefer paper ballots.

I voted for EW for President and MJ Hegar for US Senator. And for every other office I voted for women, unless there was a lone male candidate. We elect all non-Federal Judges in Texas, so there were a lot, many of them running unopposed.

Ever person working the polls were women.

I was thrilled to see that, and doubly thrilled to see just how many women were running. We need more women at all levels in this state, as well as Nationwide.

BTW, Fort Worth is deep red. Going blue is too much to hope for. I will settle for purple.

1. Obama said we need more women, because women are better leaders.

 

I agree.

2. Those machines are in place in all the largest cities in Texas except Houston.

 

They're still using those old untrackavle systems

3. Fort Worth went blue in 2018!

 

Hopefully Denton County will follow suit this time, kicking the douchebag out of office with Texas's EC votes.

4. I voted early in Austin the other day.

 

Travis County has the same sort of voting machine. I admire Red Earth Daughter, but she doesnít seem to have Joe Bidenís traction. I also voted for MJ Hegar.
