Connect with The Tea Party!
[1.13.11 -- I just had word this morning that Ron Paul is polling 67% in the Saddle Up Texas Straw Poll. His supporters like to take over these straw polls to influence the public to think he is a viable candidate for the White House.
Fortunately there is a way to text vote your straw poll choices without attending the three-day Minute Maid Stadium event in Houston (which many of us cannot afford to do).
My husband and I voted by texting last night. Fortunately, Norma Jeter has given us even more explicit directions for us "dummies" this morning. Please take a few minutes to text vote so that the Ron Paul supporters will not "steal" this straw poll election. -- Donna Garner]
1.13.11 -- From Norma Jeter of Texas Tea Party Republican Women -
"TEXT-VOTING FOR DUMMIES!" I finally figured out you don't "call" the 22333, you type it in the "TO" line of New Messages! DUH! So I am qualified to write this. :) Go to the link below and read instructions, find the candidates you want to vote for. Get their CODES - one for each office (unopposed candidates not listed) and enter the CODE in the MSG box and hit SEND. I did each one in a separate text. You can vote only once per office, but you can text in separate votes. Your cell phone does not have to be "smart" - no internet connection required! Only cell phones with a Texas phone number allowed to vote.

STRAW POLL TEXT VOTE THURS – SAT
|January 12th, 2012
In order to help Texans have a voice in the presidential primary process, Saddle Up Texas organizers have created a free text poll to accompany the in-person straw poll at the Saddle Up Texas Straw Poll event this weekend.
The expanded polling will allow voters unable to attend the event to participate in choosing a candidate. For too long, Texas has had no voice in choosing presidential candidates. We want to change all that. We believe this expanded polling effort will cause candidates to take notice, and may inspire similar efforts in other states in the future.
The poll will also include the same races featured on the ballot for voters at the Saddle Up Texas event. Text options include the U.S. Senate race, U.S. House races, Texas Senate races and Texas House races. Voters will not be charged for voting in the text poll, and will only be allowed to vote using phones with Texas area codes, and may vote only once in each race.
The Saddle Up Texas Straw Poll text option will be available from noon Thursday, January 12th to 2 p.m. Saturday, January 14th. Instructions for voting in the straw poll are available at http://www.saddleuptexaspoll.com/text , including a link to help voters find their district numbers if needed.
Results of the straw poll will be announced at the same time as the in-person vote results, 5 p.m. Saturday, January 14th.
