Well, well, well...

"What did you do today, honey?"

Well, actually, I registered as a voter in the state of Texas for the 2008 US presidential elections.

I'm not one to get involved in political discussions, so all I'll say on the matter is that it's about time I use the power of my dual-citizenship for good instead of evil.

I *knew* my social security card would come in handy one day!

Awesome - I didn't have your email to pass it on directly.
So, is Texas one of the states where you have to register a party affiliation? freaked me out the first time I saw that on the NY registration!

Congrats!

It's very nice to see someone actually taking the time to do this. The apathy of my generation disgusts me.

Hooray for voting in Texas!! I'm totally going to, too! Yay for doing one's civic duty and not seeing it reflected in the state's electoral votes whatsoever! It's the thought that counts...

Someone asked about registration, holy crap, I can actually use some of the utterly trivial facts I learned in TX Government class in college!

In Texas, you automatically register by voting in a party primary, as opposed to most states where you register with the party first and then vote in the primary. And once you register with one party, you can't register with the other. I've heard of stories of local Republicans losing candidacy because they voted for a Democratic buddy in a primary and inadvertently became registered Democrats.
