HOUSTON and HENRY COUNTY: The registered voters in Houston and Henry County cast their votes on Tuesday and at 7 PM the votes were counted.
THANKS to "your" President, Joe Biden, there were a ton of straight party votes cast.
On a local level it is the individual and not the party that counts. On a national level it matters more but this country would do a lot better of those in office were " Americans " and not parties. Because when some party had an idea the other party is critical, no matter if the idea is good for America.
