For anyone wishing to vote this election cycle in Texas (early voting opened on October 21), there is a new wrinkle. If you don't have a valid ID like a Texas drivers license or concealed handgun permit (not kidding), you are going to have to get a voter ID card. Sure, there are fights against it in court already, but, for now, you have to get it if you want to participate in freedom...and voting.
There are a variety of ways to get the IDs, though word is it can be pretty damn confusing. Of course, no one would ever accuse supporters of the legislation of purposely passing a bill that makes it harder to vote because, why would they do that?
There is a new website -- GotIDTexas.org -- to help you navigate the confusion. Of course, you can visit designated drivers license offices on Saturdays -- though you can't get a license on those days -- and unfortunately there are counties with few if any resources, but if you believe in freedom, you'll do what is necessary to exercise your right to vote!
