Texas Democrats send me e-mail, trying to make democracy in America stronger, and work better, especially in Texas:
Today is the absolute LAST DAY to register to vote for the March 1 Presidential Primary.
If you or someone you know wants to vote for Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, or Martin O’Malley in the Democratic Primary but they aren’t registered to vote yet, today is the last day to get registered.
Fill out your voter registration application online — then print it, sign it, and make sure to get it in the mail before the post office closes.
If you are already registered to vote, forward this email to any friends and family members that you think haven’t registered to vote.
Let’s do this,
Executive Director, Texas Democratic Party
Paid for by the Texas Democratic Party (www.txdemocrats.org)
and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
I do not know why Texas Republicans did not send me a similar e-mail. I’m on their lists, too.
