Opening Arguments


With all the talk about "the primary that finally matters," I was expecting a big crowd at my polling place. But when I stopped by to vote just before 8, it wasn't that busy. There was a steady trickle of people, but no lines. And my polling place is one of those bundled three-precinct sites. I do hope we hit 50 percent turnout. If we don't hit it for this election, with all the publicity it's gotten, we're not likely to ever again.

We actually had quite a turnout down here in Texas for our primary a couple of months back, I was happy to see long lines and lots of young voters. 'Course, the really hard part was getting all the extra hay for the livestock for while we were gone to vote, and the 2 day buggy ride to town and 2 day buggy ride back, ... but it was worth it.
