I hope this gets brought up during the Senate debate.

\ not that it will matter, but it would be fun to put Texas in the spotlight

I don't trust these fsckers as far as I can throw them, but it appears I haven't been arbitrarily struck from the rolls yet.

God I can't wait till a year from now.  My sentence will be over and I can move to New Mexico

Varied and very pretty land in NM.  Northwest is high desert with mesas and a view of the San Juan mountains.  Central and north central is a big national forest.  Albuquerque is a bit shaky in spots, but is nice generally (hot air balloon festival is nice as well as the ring of mountains).  Santa Fe is also good and partially up on a mountain.

Miss living out there.

I'll bet you've already got a trailer park site picked out in Deming, Lordsburg or Farmington....

Texas is best seen in a rear-view mirror, rapidly receding at 90 MPH.  You'll like it here, wherever you end up.

Nice area.  Should give you a good view of the north-south balloon pattern in the fall, and a nice view of the mountains.  Hope you like red and green chilis.

It's just as well, since Mitch would not have allowed a vote for her replacement while Obama or any other Democrat was President.

See also the 8-month vacancy between Scalia's death and Gorsuch's confirmation.

Is it illegal to print the forms and mail them to other people?  If not, then I'll print them myself and send them to whoever wants one.  If so, then I'll find every second hand printer that puts ink on paper and send it to poor neighborhoods in Texas.

Without knowing a single thing about this? I'm going to go out on a limb and say yes. It is illegal. Because reasons.

Destructor: This is all perfectly normal.


The only abnormal thing about it is that they now do all this stuff out in the open, right in front of everyone with fark all worry about it.


"Harris County? Sorry, can't register, all outta forms.  Oh, Montgomery County, here ya go, good Christian."


"Oh, you want to vote?  Well, get to a polling place.  Oh, they moved yer polling place out of town?  Tough break."


"Yes, this is yer polling place, but it says here you were struck from the rolls.  I guess you werentet notified er didn't know.  Same-day registration to vote?  In this state?  Bless yer heart.  Even if we allowed it, I'm sure we would be short of a registration form fer you."

are utility bills used as a form of identification in Texas?

no i am not googling it.

fine.

While your idea is intriguing, seems it may make it easier for people to vote.

I simply listed it as a resource.

Also, you can just mail it in.

If you don't have access to a printer at home, go to your local library.

If you can't prove that it's me based on this utility bill, then I assume this utility bill is also not mine to pay.
