Get on your FEET!

This post is more 'local' than usual. For those Texas voters who want to have more say in Texas politics, check out the new 'FEET', Fair Elections for Every Texan, campaign.

For learning more about how to tackle the redistricting in Texas, check out fairvote.org.

Another issue for independents, and third parties trying to participate in Texas politics is the ballot access. Excerpt:
Texas is among the most difficult states for statewide independent candidates and non-recognized third parties to gain access to the ballot for the general election. Several factors combine to make access uniquely difficult
Sadly, fair access in the United States is not a given. For further detailed information, check out ballot-access.org.
