Move over, Iowa. Step aside, New Hampshire. The road to the White House starts here in the Lone Star State!

I am pleased to announce the Texas Democratic Party is holding our first-ever
ePrimary Poll, a weeklong online event that gives Texas Democrats an opportunity to make their voices heard in the next presidential election by supporting their favorite Democratic candidate.

Starting today, you can
cast a vote for your favorite Democratic presidential candidate at the TDP website. If you want to have a say in determining the next president of the United States, now is the time to make your voice heard!

Don't have a favorite candidate yet? Take a few minutes to check out each candidate's profile and their personal message to Texas Democrats by
clicking here.

Voting for the
ePrimary Poll lasts until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, September 7th, and we will announce the winner on September 10th. But if you want to know how your favorite Democrat is doing, check our website for the latest vote tallies, which will be updated daily beginning Tuesday.

Cast your vote for the next President of the United States today!
Texas has produced some of America's greatest political heroes, and Texas voters have always played a significant role in our nation's politics. The Lone Star State is one of the largest and most populous states in the country - and one of the most diverse.

From the woods of East Texas to the Rio Grande Valley, the widespread cultural and geographical differences among Texas voters are a reflection of the diversity of the country as a whole. To win in Texas, a presidential candidate must appeal to urban, suburban and rural voters alike and earn support from Texans of every race, creed, and color.

Unfortunately, Republicans in the State Legislature weakened the national political influence of Texas voters when they failed to advance Texas' 2008 primary election date. The
ePrimary Poll will give Texas Democrats a chance to weigh in on the presidential nomination process and ensure our voices are heard.
Voters are ready for a change, and our Democratic candidates are qualified and ready to lead with new ideas. Make your voice heard and tell the country which Democrat you want to see take back the White House in 2008.
Vote NOW!

Your friend and fellow Democrat,
Boyd L. Richie
