The second week of early voting started yesterday. and you know I wanted to make certain that I got to weigh in on this 2015 mayoral and Houston civic election because I was voter suppressed out of the 2013 one.
But it’s now 2015, and with Texas driver’s license in hand that doesn’t expire until 2020 and current orange voter registration card in hand, I sauntered into my fave early voting location with Dee Dee Watters and cast my ballot for who I think should be sitting in The Horseshoe and those comfortable leather chairs in January running our city.
And yeah, there’s some human rights ordinance you may have heard about called HERO that I voted on as well.
After we both handled our election business, Dee Dee and I decided to have some fun doing some Trans 101 ‘ejumacation’ for the assembled poll workers handing out push cards, including one wearing a Women for Hall shirt. We may have flipped some minds and hearts in the process, and if they haven’t voted yet, changed some NO votes on HERO to YES ones.
Speaking of voting, if you haven’t done so yet, need to get to an early voting center before Friday. After that date, you will have to wait until November 3 to make your electoral voice heard.
