2. "It started out a good day. The day before I celebrated my 14th anniversary with my husband. The cherry blossom tree we planted in the backyard was exploding in pink taffy balls, and the smell of the lilies he got me floated through the living room as I walked to my desk."
3. "From there it went downhill pretty quickly ... For the last 2 years, I have been trying to protect New York voters, and voters across the country from a particularly “bad” type of voting machine known as a “hybrid”.

Great news! Today, after hearing from thousands of Texans, the @TXsecofstate issued additional guidance to voters & election officials regarding Hart eSlate Electronic Voting Machines. Last night, we sent a letter to the Secretary. #ProtectOurVote texascivilrightsproject.org/release-texas-…
