    Especially since the location changes every election. The first years after reaching 21 (the minimum age then), I lived in the same place, but voted in five different places, each at least a mile from the previous. I was in SMU in the middle of Dallas, not some depopulated rural region.

    Texas actually had a pretty good voting system until the Republicans sabotaged it recently. More voters are always bad for Republicans.

    ARodney: The time I was discussing was in the 1950s when Republicans voted in the Democratic primary and selected their own candidate by convention. As a result, most of the time, the general election was between two Republicans.

    Last voter fraud I heard about was perpetuated by Republicans.

    Outside the “Polling” place is a sign: “Enter to see the Egress!” Upon entering, you’ll see a series of signs: This way to the Egress →. After exiting each “voter” says: Wow, I just saw an Egress!!

    @Meh~thodology

    Apparently you didn’t read the article. While the focus WAS republicans doing election fraud… well here are a couple of quotes from it:
    " they almost always involved minorities, Democrats and those in lower economic groups."
    and
    ""Toth said words to the effect, ‘I called up there (Abbott’s office), and they said, ‘We have 150 Democrats and six Republicans; we are not going to let the Republicans go,’""
    .
    So according to the article, every once in a while a republican will commit voter fraud but not nearly as often as a democrat.
    .
    Thanks for the link.
