Gram's Scrapbook - Voter Registration Certificate

With Election Day coming up on Tuesday, it seems appropriate to share my grandmother's 1967 voter registration certificate. The state of Texas required annual voter registration from 1966 to 1971, but this is the only certificate that Gram saved. The one bit of information I wish I knew - her party affiliation - is not listed. If she were living, would she cast her ballot for Obama or for Romney?

  1. They registered EVERY year??? I can see why that practice was discontinued.
