SUPER TUESDAY IN ATX
Today is Super Tuesday: voting for the 2016 Presidential Primary will be held in voting in 12 states and 1 US Territory.
- •As in all things, Texas considers itself a BFD.Texas has the most Super Tuesday delegates available for both the Republicans & Democrats.
- •There are 222 delegates at stake for Democratic candidates, and 155 delegates at stake for Republican candidates.Both parties assign the delegates using a proportional method, meaning delegates will be given to multiple candidates based on the results.
- •I voted this afternoon at my high school.My county has an online polling location "wait time" clock per precinct. The polling location near my office had an hour + wait; my high school had a 7-minute wait. I thought it would be fun to vote at my high school; instead I just felt old.
- •Voting is important to me every time, but today felt important.
- •I'm proud that I did my part today by casting my vote.Even though my head was too big to include both it and my "I VOTED" sticker in the same photo.
- •America. Hell yeah.
