It's not immediately obvious on the page the link takes you to exactly how to check your registration. If you look at the black banner across the top of the page you'll see the link "Am I registered to vote?" If you aren't registered, there's a "register" link on the "Am I registered?" page.

I normally use the "local" link, and follow to get my "Sample Ballot" which links to checking if you are a Registered Voter. https://sites.omniballot.us/48167/app/sampleBallot/vr

I received this clarification from John Wayne Ferguson: They are father and son! https://www.statesman.com/news/20191206/herman-rockys-who-would-be-president

Looks like Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente has filed to run for President as Republican and Democrat...I am sure a "Latino computer glitch."

There are also 10 Propositions on the Republican ballot:

1.) Texas should not restrict or prohibit prayer in public schools.

2.) Texas should reject restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms.

3.) Texas should ban the practice of taxpayer-funded lobbying, which allows your tax dollars to be spent on lobbyists who work against the taxpayer.

4.) Texas should support the construction of a physical barrier and use existing defense-grade surveillance equipment along the entire southern border of Texas.

5.) Texas parents or legal guardians of public school children under the age of 18 should be the sole decision makers for all their children’s healthcare decisions including, but not limited to, psychological assessment and treatment, contraception, and sex education.

6.) Texas should ban chemical castration, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and genital mutilation surgery on all minor children for transition purposes, given that Texas children as young as three (3) are being transitioned from their biological sex to the opposite sex.

7.) Texans should protect and preserve all historical monuments, artifacts, and buildings, such as the Alamo Cenotaph and our beloved Alamo, and should oppose any reimagining of the Alamo site.

8.) Texas election officials should heed the directives of the Office of the Governor to purge illegal voters from the voter rolls and verify that each new registered voter is a U.S. Citizen.

9.) Bail in Texas should be based only on a person’s danger to society and risk of flight, not that person’s ability to pay.

10.) Texas should limit our state legislators’ terms to 12 years.

These are propositions, not referendums.

Wow - it's like someone took my most offensive stereotypes of Texas Republicans and used them to write a comedy sketch. [ohmy] I assume you'll be voting for all of these? [tongue]

Carlos Ponce

No, there are two I will not be voting for. There is nothing offensive here, Bailey. Just getting a consensus on what Republicans believe. Results are not binding.
