Our Republican dominated elections department here in Fort Bend County has once again moved a voting location without notifying voters. Hal can tell you all about it.
Juanita is paying a nice lady friend of hers to stand at the old polling location all day and hand out maps to Democrats to the new location. She considered having the lady friend tell Republicans that she has no clue where they vote, but last she heard, their voting location had been moved to the county judge’s front porch.
The Juanita changed her mind and composed this letter —
Your desire for smaller government and less taxes has left you here without a clue of where to vote.
Your Republican dominated elections office moved your voting location without notifying you.
So, you have two good-ole Republican choices:
1. You can count on your self-reliance to find out where to vote on your own. You won’t need our help for that. Have a nice day.
2. You can show your support for free enterprise by paying the nice lady who handed you this letter $5.00 for her time, effort, ink, and research to buy yourself printed directions to your new voting location.
That would be doing it the Republican way.
You probably save about 1/20th of a penny in taxes this year by not being notified of where you now vote.
We’re Democrats. We believe in responsible, responsive government. We also believe we are our brother’s keepers.
And we have deeply enjoyed this little neighborly ribbing.
Your new voting location is River Pointe Church and there are directions on the back of this paper.
However, if you would like to give the nice lady $1.00 for the directions, those donations will be given to Helping Hands in Richmond.
Please consider voting for a few local Democrats this November. We take your right to vote very seriously. We also take your right to be well-informed so seriously that we are willing to spend our own money and time to print this map for you.

P.S. By the way, under Republican dominated leadership local taxes have increased and your county government has grown by leaps and bounds with cronyism.
If they can’t find their way after that, there’s no helping them.
