The fall 2013 off-year election is here. Early voting began this morning and continues through next Friday. Election day proper is November 5.
Off year elections are always low-turnout affairs that maximize the special interest vote; that's why the powers that be use them to sneak through crap that would never make it through if people were paying attention.
With that in mind, Cahnman's Musings issues the following recommendations if you're voting in the City of Austin or Travis County:
State of Texas Constitutional Amendments:
- AGAINST Prop. 6 -- Prop. 6 is Joe Straus' Water Slush Fund. Austin insiders are using the current drought as a smokescreen to divert $2 Billion to their cronies. Send a message to Texas House Republicans.
- Mike VanDeWalle -- Mike VanDeWalle is in no way, shape, or form an endorsed candidate of Cahnman's Musings. We strongly suspect VanDeWalle is a vote for Joe Straus. That being said, the Democrats in this race are friggin' crazy.
