From the Texas voting website "There is a new law in Section 63.0013-of the Voting Rights Act known as- Notice of Voting Order Priority that allows voters with mobility problems to be accepted for voting ahead of others in line. Ask your voting clerk to move you to the front of the line if this will help you while in your polling site." http://www.tarrantcounty.com/en/elections.html

My experience as a person with mobility challenges. I walk with a cane. When I saw there wasn't a line, I walked right in. Immediately when the poll worker saw me using a cane, they offered me an area where I could sit down to vote. I did, and he sent for another poll worker/voting clerk to issue me an access code.

After hearing all the stories about the defective machines, I decided not to vote let it choose the candidates automatically. Each person running was labeled Democrat, Republican or Libertarian. (No independent candidates this year.) I noticed a lot of Republican judges were running unopposed.
