OMG Are Texans Crazy?????

The four of us just got home from the post-primary caucus. It took us from 6:30-10:00 pm to vote in the caucus and have the very lengthy process be completed. Morgan and I served as precinct volunteers. This was the first time we acted as election workers, Morgan having cast her first vote only last Friday. It wasn't much different than running a fourth grade class room. Please line up here, please sign there, etc.

Republican votes were not in doubt, but the Democratic results for Texas may not be finalized until tomorrow. I've got a picture on my phone of Morgan voting at the caucus. We've lost our camera. It's somewhere in the house but not to be had tonight. The caucus folks were so cute, everyone stepped aside when it came to be her turn in line so that she could vote at my spot and even waited for the picture. I'll try and transfer it to the computer in the morning.

I have two blog friends in Pennsylvania waiting to vote next month. So far tonight, it looks like there will still be important votes for them to cast! Yeah.

Morgan and I are going to lead a campaign to stop this caucus nonsense in Texas after this year's election cycle. All totaled, it took us about 6 hours over 2 days to have our votes counted. No wonder people think we are crazy.

Texas Primary

Morgan and I voted on Friday during a very busy hour. The line was about about 30 min. long, still much better than it will be tomorrow. We are kind of disgusted with the news calling the elections before the polls even open.

After living in Texas all my life, I've only learned how our caucus really works. We'll have a long night tomorrow at the caucus. At least Morgan is looking forward to all the politicking. This year, vote early and vote often actually turns out to be true!
