Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Thu Feb 27, 2020, 07:24 PM

 

Early voted today in Texas.

Top of the ticket should be obvious by my stated preference.

Then it gets complicated.

A lot of the candidates I've never heard of.

Others I've heard of but they're running uncontested.

So I cheated.

Whenever there were gender choices in the candidates, I chose the female candidate.

Whenever there were ethnic choices, I chose the Hispanic candidate.

Whenever there was no choice, I chose the one candidate.

On and on down the ballot, to Tax assessor collector.

So shoot me.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

2. That tends to be close to my methodology also

 

If the uncontested choice is someone I've heard of and don't like, then I go with the no vote.

And THANKS!

4. That's what I do.

 

Democrats over Republicans
Women over Men
People Of Color (Black, Latinx, Asian, Native American, Pacific Islander) over White People
LGBTQIAPK+ people over straight people like me
Smart People over Ignorant People
Nice people over mean people
working-class people over rich people.

6. I read the sample ballot and do research.

 

By voting the way you did, you could boost a few republicans.

7. It was hard enough to find the voting locations

 

I'll be heartbroken if a Republican gets elected Tax collector because of my poor voter information.

9. Many local offices are non-partisan, you have to dig to find the person's party affiliation.

 

Florida does that with Judges, I have to dig for info to make an informed choice. You vote the way you vote, it is your vote, not mine, I just pointed out a risk of doing it that way.

11. In Texas you vote on a party ballot - Democratic or Republican

 

All the candidates have the same party affiliation.

Whoever I chose was a Democrat.

The only way I could vote for a Republican is to accidentally vote for a weak candidate for the general elections.

10. I'm still undecided in the presidential and Senate races,

 

but I've eliminated some of the possibilities. I've made up my mind as far as the U.S. Representative race in my district is concerned. I still need to investigate the state House and state Senate races. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about the other state races, judicial or local races.
