Today is primary day in Texas. (Or if you are a republican in my town, the only voting day that matters.)
While voting an older man and his elderly, wheelchair bound, father came in.
The older man was irate that he didn’t get an absentee ballot for his father like in years past.
“Last three years, the ballot comes in the mail. This year – nothing.”
The clerk replied that you now have to request the ballot.
The older man countered that “Dad doesn’t do computers. How is he supposed to request one?”
The clerk told him that he could call for one and the man said this was a pain.
I wanted to jump in and say:
“Yup. Another thing the democrats fucked up for everyone.
After the wholesale cheating in 2020 we had to change the laws which make it more difficult for everyone, so thank a Democrat!”
But I kept my mouth shut.
