Guest Blogged by John Gideon of While activist eyes will be watching Ohio next Tuesday I am going to be watching Texas. The March 4 primary is one week from tomorrow and some Texas counties are just now deciding that turn-out is going to be huge and that they are not prepared. El Paso Co. is leasing 100 voting machines to help. Fort Bend Co is leasing 200 machines from Dent Co. to get them through the primary. Readers will recall that Fort Bend is the county that recently accepted the resignation of their election director because he warned that there would be long lines and he wanted to solve the problem with paper ballots. Now the county is leasing paperless voting machines in hopes of keeping the lines short....
