Paul Begala, a strategist who serves as a political contributor for CNN, stated, “Texas isn’t a red state. It’s a non-voting state.”
Parker County’s 2008 primary election had 68,503 eligible voters, yet just 24,423 voted (36 percent) in an election year where the first African American man and the first woman were running for president. This was one of the biggest elections of all time and just 36 percent of Parker County’s eligible voters actually cast ballots. Parker County’s 2012 primary had 73,633 eligible voters and just 13,741 voted (19 percent).
Let’s show the rest of Texas we, in Parker County, want our votes to count in 2014. Contact me at 214-385-3662 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved so Democrats can keep the United States Senate, take back the United States Congress and show Texas’ true blue color!
