I like the selector wheel. My opinion is that the touch screens would very quickly become a fiasco, if not in the first voting cycle, then next time after they've been used, abused, locked up and stored for a couple years, then rolled back out to be used and abused again.

If you've ever tried using a bad touch screen it can be infuriating.

We've used them in Kendall County for some time now without a problem.

We're so behind the times in Red Oak, we don't have computers and vote with paper ballots. I hope that Reagan guy wins.

I voted today in the HEB area, I made sure all my votes were correct since others have stated problems with their machines.

I did use my LTC as my ID and I wore a red shirt, now I will say I did not wear my red shirt on purpose.

Dead people is one thing, but people in Red Oak are being allowed to vote?

Nope, no red shirts for me.
