    I got an email March 7th about voting March 8th. I had never voted in a Green Party primary before so I was excited to vote thinking it would be easy and organized like a 2 party set up. When I was listening to KPFT’s calendar in the morning on 3/8 and didnt hear the vote info announced I called into KPFT and they added a reminder about the GP vote. It was rainy and dreary that night, but after getting home from work that day I drove from near Cypress to downtown Houston. It was hard to find the church location with the address on GPS taking me to the corner of nothing and nothing. I reset the GPS and tried again. I am new to Houston, and I became scared that maybe driving around in the night, a female, alone, was not a good idea. Finally, When I made it to the church I was informed at the door the location was changed to a Bar & Grill due to anticipated flooding at the church. I drove to the new spot where there appeared to be a few people in the covered patio sitting but no movement of people coming and going as if just having voted, like you see at 2 party polls. Sitting in my car I searched websites for any details I could find then saw a posting that the date had been moved to March 12. (I am fasting from Facebook for lent so maybe there was a message there I missed.) I checked my email to see if I missed a postponement email. No such email. Why didn’t they tell me that at the church about the postponement? Maybe I would have learned about the process if I had gone into the pub to find out if this was a GP meetup and meet some new folks, but I refrained bc with what I had to say I would have been escorted out by security I was so pissed about it all. I didn’t call KPFT either the next morning to let them know it was my bad to call in the first place and give any new info. Today is March 12. I am not going downtown again. So with that complaint I have a solution-a newcomer section to this site of what to expect if you are new to the Party as far as the GP voting process, dates of voting being different than 2 party, are there GP delegates, etc.?
