MSNBC is reporting that the polls close at 9pm in TX, they close at 7pm. In less than an hour. And if you dont vote, you cannot caucus.

I just got back from my caucus, precinct 209TX, and I have never been more proud to be an American in my life. I was about 65% Obamazooids 35% Hillaroids.

At 7pm, when the polls closed, there were still 600 people in line to vote. I had fucking tears in my eyes. I got to go home, eat dinner, help with homework, get the kids to bed, and went back at 9pm. We got in 30 minutes latter after the final person voted. Unlike here at WM, though, Obamazooids and Hillaroids laughed and joked together without spite.

I got lucky and ended up close to the sign-in table, where I talked to an African American woman and here mom. We joked like we were at a wedding. When they called on us first to come to the table and sign in, the daughter stopped at the Obama table, while I escorted mom to the Clinton table.

Nobody sneered or jeered, everybody smiled at everybody. And we all were truly Americans tonight...
