i’ve been putting off changing my voter registration ever since i moved to new york. there isn’t any real GOOD reason why, just several mediocre reasons: a blue vote in texas is a good vote (although when i forget to vote in every election except the presidential, that reason is kind of moot); there are plenty of blue votes in new york already (again, that doesn’t really matter if i don’t VOTE); and often, the same lists that are kept by the voters registar and the Department of Public Safety (the DMV, for you non-texans) are the same lists that are used to issue jury duty summons (i still periodically receive summons in dallas, so that one seems to be valid for the time being).however, after reading this bulletin i received from my high school alumni association, i feel like some good might have come out of my procrastination.
