Texas Sucks

The state ranks at the bottom when it comes to voter participation.  Texas is a red state, and republicans will see to it that it stays that way with:  voter ID laws, unfair redistricting, and the lack of same-day voter registration.  The Christian Science Monitor has the list of top 6 states with the highest voter turnout.  Most of those states have same-day registration laws in place, and Oregon voters vote by mail.

Julian Castro, and Wendy Davis have gotten quite a bit of national attention.  Perhaps they can appeal to apathetic voters, and help the state's left make strides in helping to turn Texas blue.  Apart from that I don't see things changing.
