Some good things the Texas Legislature did

Now if these aren't vetoed by Perry....

As an election judge here is one that is important.
HB 2823 (Rep. Dwayne Bohac, R-Houston)
Authorizing voters who applied to vote early by mail but did not do so to cast provisional ballots and cancel their mail ballot application in person at the polling place.
Right now if you asked for a mail-in ballot but did not use it in Harris County you must go into Downtown Houston to cancel your mail-in ballot and then return to your precinct to vote.

Several other good bills did get passed as well. Our Democrats also blocked the meaningless Voter-ID bills and a Republican measure to block a person from taking mail-in ballots to the polls for shut-ins. The GOP will have to work harder next time to prevent people from voting.
