A federal judge Tuesday granted an injunction allowing registered voters in Texas to apply to vote by mail during the coronavirus pandemic, a development that could result in sticker shock for the Galveston County Clerk’s Office.

The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Fred Biery opens the possibility Texas voters under the age of 65, who wouldn’t normally qualify for mail-in voting, might be eligible to vote by mail in the November election.

So thankful that this stupid ruling has been put on hold by the Appeals Court....

There should be NO public money for online private schools. This would just be another invitation for corruption involving taxpayer money. Vote Larry Taylor OUT in November!!

So Diane is opposed to choice of schools. The on-line private schools have experience in this field. It isn't for every student but many excel using on-line instruction.

"So Diane is opposed to choice of schools" Carlos, I have no idea from her comment if she is or isn't. and you don't either. Your common extrapolations of the opinions of others are quite revealing. The fact that you must resort to them just shows the weakness of your arguments.

Carlos Ponce

Not a weak argument. You have to account for ALL she's submitted since getting on GCDN forums.

Real weak Carlos

Not weak at all.
