We Democrats need to get these voting numbers up closer to the 2008 level! Voter participation will be crucial -- in the Primary, and especially in the general election. Many thanks to those who are warriors in the GOTV effort: volunteering to register voters; participating in phone banks to motivate voters, answer questions about when, where, & how to vote, and remind people to send in their mail ballots. All of those actions are vital. And usually, the people with whom you interact are very grateful for your time and effort. Let's all work to turn Texas Blue!
