Electoral College’s winner-take-all system is unconstitutional, lawsuit alleges
Salon

Four federal lawsuits have been filed arguing that while the Electoral College may be enshrined in the Constitution, the winner-take-all system utilized by it is not. The lawsuits, which have been filed by the attorney David Boies from the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner and by the League of United Latin American Citizens, was made possible by a crowdfunding campaign started by Harvard University law professor Lawrence Lessig. “By magnifying the impact of some votes and disregarding others, the Read the full story

Here is the information you need to participate in early voting. Aquí está la información que necesita para participar en la votación temprana.
Early voting locations, addresses, and hours of operation
Starting Tuesday, Feb. 20, you can vote early for the candidates who best reflect your values, for the candidates you think are most likely to make your priorities their priorities while serving in office.

Recently, we’ve seen the women’s movement make great strides in demanding fairness in the workplace. We’ve seen the fate of our Dreamers become more and more uncertain. And, we’ve sadly seen even more mass shootings taking the lives of our fellow Americans.

We either close our eyes to what’s happening. Or, we stand up as a society and through our voting insist that our elected leaders pass legislation that makes us a more caring society and narrows the gulfs that divide us.

Here is the information you need to participate in early voting:

Early voting locations, addresses, and hours of operation

Register to vote, check to see if you are registered correctly

(Note that EVERY registered voter in Dallas County can vote at ANY early-voting location)

When I cast my votes, I ask myself which candidate is the one most likely to mirror the values I try to bring to public office. Will they fulfill the promises they make during a campaign? Will they hold themselves accountable to those who elect them to office? Will they be accessible when a constituent needs their help?

Some of us will throw up our hands, believing the process is too complicated or their vote will not matter. But I believe this is our chance to rise above our fears. To become educated voters who see through the negative campaign rhetoric to discover the truth about those who want out votes. To rise above our tendency to let others do our patriotic responsibility for us.

Early voting runs from Tuesday, Feb. 20 until Friday, March 2. The primaries are Tuesday, March 6. Please make your voice heard during this election season. There’s just too much at stake not to.

Lugares de votación temprana, direcciones y horas de operación
A partir del martes, 20 de febrero, puede votar temprano por los candidatos que mejor reflejen sus valores. Voten por los candidatos que crean que vayan hacer de sus prioridades las prioridades de ellos mismos mientras están electos.

Recientemente, hemos visto el movimiento de las mujeres hacer grandes progresos en exigir igualdad en sus lugares de trabajo. También, hemos visto el destino de nuestros “Dreamers” cada vez más incierto. Y, tristemente hemos visto aún más tiroteos masivos tomar la vida de nuestros residentes.

Podemos cerrar los ojos ante lo que está sucediendo. O podemos defendernos como una sociedad y a través de nuestro voto, insistir que nuestros líderes electos aprueban una legislación que nos haga una sociedad más compasiva y más unida.

Aquí está la información que necesita para participar en la votación temprana:

Lugares de votación temprana, direcciones y horas de operación

Registrarse para votar, revise para ver si están registrados correctamente

(Tenga en cuenta que todos los votantes registrados en el Condado de Dallas pueden votar en cualquier lugar de votación temprana)

Cuando usted salga a votar, pregúntese cuál candidato es el que más probable va a reflejar los valores que usted intenta hacer llegar a la oficina pública. ¿Estos candidatos cumplen las promesas que hacen durante una campaña? ¿Escucharan y responderán a quienes los eligieron? ¿Serán accesibles cuando un constituyente necesite su ayuda?

Algunos de nosotros nos frustramos, creyendo que el proceso es demasiado complicado o que nuestro voto no importa. Pero creo que esta es nuestra oportunidad para superar nuestros miedos. Ser votantes educados que aun viendo una campaña negativa puede descubrir la verdad acerca de aquellos que quieren nuestro voto. Para superar nuestra tendencia a que otros cumplan con nuestra responsabilidad patriótica.

La votación temprana se llevara a cabo a partir del martes 20 de febrero hasta el viernes 2 de marzo. Las votaciones primarias serán el martes 6 de marzo. Por favor haga que su voz sea escuchada durante esta temporada electoral. Hay demasiado en juego para no votar.
