Thanks, onyx, for posting this for me. I have’t posted anything before and I was so shocked at this email I got from The Austin Statesman, I wanted it posted fast and didn’t want to waste time to do it myself.
Our presidential candidates won’t get any delegates from Texas until THE END OF MAY! This is unbelievable. The Newt camp will probably go nuts over this as he’s counting on our 155 delegates to go to him. That, of course, isn’t certain at this point, but to put our primary the last of May is nuts.
I don’t have a voter card, either. Our county is large and part of it is in one district and the other part in another district. The new map puts them together, so we can’t get a voter card until the district lines are in concrete.
This whole thing is just ridiculous and really pixxes me off!
“Our county is large..”
My county is small. I called the County Clerk’s office, even though I knew the reason for the delay in new cards being issured, just wanted to see what the response was.
The poor lady dissolved into babbling...”We have to get the cards printed, we have to get overseas ballots mailed, candidate filing deadlines..and on and on.”
I felt sorry for her.
I won’t be surprised is we are pushed to June. Grrrrr!!!
