Your vote’s your voice

votacion.jpgI love to vote at the courthouse. I vote early when I can because I’m always afraid I’ll be looking the wrong way when crossing the street and won’t make it to the official election day. There are those who say that this is “just” an election about boring old proposed amendments to the state constitution. Maybe they’re certain that in past lives they would have been one of those male Caucasian owners of property above a certain value, the only people who were allowed to vote in most states for a long time. Maybe they can afford to be bored, but everybody else should vote on principle. Much of what is statutory in other states is constitutional in Texas. I found the rundown of the proposals in the Chron to be a bit on the flippant side, but the League of Women Voters guide shows the complete text, along with points for and against each proposal. Early voting for those registered is available all over town through this coming Friday, November 2. The parking meters are free today, and the friendly people at the courthouse will be very happy to see you. For us, it was great to combine voting with a stop at the main library. And, then, there’s always November 6, Election Day proper.
