Okay, obviously, I am an Obama supporter. But regardless of your political affiliations, I think this message is bi-partisian. Many Texans do not know that we need to vote twice...yes, once in the primary and another at the cacus...Interesting having Texas actually matter in the Primary elections, huh?

BTW: Sorry, if OT (Off Topic) posts are not acceptable. I figured this one time would be okay, especially because of the important nature of the information.

Actually there's more elections going on this spring than just the presidential primary. The May election will include a lot of local Council and School Board elections which tend to impact our daily lives a lot more than the decisions of the president. The water that comes from your tap, the quality of the streets you drive, the response time of the police and fire, the parks you take your kids to, the quality of teachers at your children's school, etc.

Please take the time to include that in your voting schedule as well.

Texas ALWAYS matters in the primaries.....it's the second largest state in the US...both population and land area-wise! It has the most electoral votes behind California, followed by NY and FL.

This will be one to watch for sure. If nothing else, it certainly will hold everyone's interest this time around. I'm still voting for McCain, though.
