If I want to see Weld Vs Warren in November, after Iím institutionalized, why canít I select both?

Itís never made sense to me.
Same issue here in Texas. I am neither (R) or (D), but am forced to pick one.

The (R) ballot had some propositions on it that were important to me, so I picked that one.

Quote:
1.) Texas should not restrict or prohibit prayer in public schools.

2.) Texas should reject restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms.

3.) Texas should ban the practice of taxpayer-funded lobbying, which allows your tax dollars to be spent on lobbyists who work against the taxpayer.

4.) Texas should support the construction of a physical barrier and use existing defense-grade surveillance equipment along the entire southern border of Texas.

5.) Texas parents or legal guardians of public school children under the age of 18 should be the sole decision makers for all their childrenís healthcare decisions including, but not limited to, psychological assessment and treatment, contraception, and sex education.

6.) Texas should ban chemical castration, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and genital mutilation surgery on all minor children for transition purposes, given that Texas children as young as three (3) are being transitioned from their biological sex to the opposite sex.

7.) Texans should protect and preserve all historical monuments, artifacts, and buildings, such as the Alamo Cenotaph and our beloved Alamo, and should oppose any reimagining of the Alamo site.

8.) Texas election officials should heed the directives of the Office of the Governor to purge illegal voters from the voter rolls and verify that each new registered voter is a U.S. Citizen.

9.) Bail in Texas should be based only on a personís danger to society and risk of flight, not that personís ability to pay.

10.) Texas should limit our state legislatorsí terms to 12 years.
