Early Voting and General Election polling places found here.

Use the link above, along with your voter card to find your precinct and location. Sample ballots may be found at this Denton County website.

BTW, the Denton RC Article linked to above mischaracterizes Tim Barnwell's position with regard to Healthcare. It uses the word "nationalize", which is just wrong in many ways. It implies confiscation and conscription, which could not be further from what Barnwell is suggesting.

Probably an innocent mistake in the choice of words by the reporter, but as we know words carry a lot of meaning. Universal and comprehensive healthcare is NOT about socialized medicine or nationalization - it's about single-payer (Government) and multi-provider (Free Market).

Regarding Richardson liquor sales ballot measure:

I printed my sample ballot and it is listed there (see link here: http://www.dalcoelections.org/november72006/ballots/b2-3.pdf).

In addition, a snippet is on the LWV Richardson site here: http://lwvrichardson.org/elections.html

And it is in the list of Dallas county elections at the DalCo site here: http://www.dalcoelections.org/november72006/elections.asp

The only info I found on the CoR website is listed here: http://www.cor.net/Elections/homepage.html

Here's another link with a little commentary about the Richardson liquor ballot.

There is an area around Buckingham that is zoned for liquor and beer sales, which is technically Richardson. I am confused as to why this area is different from the rest of Richardson. Any thoughts?
