Polyglottery has always fascinated me, I studied six languages in high school, most of my relatives are quadrilingual or quinquelingual, but this is too much even for me. I mean, seriously, a Texas voting sign in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese? If you don't understand English, then you have no business voting in US presidential elections/primaries.
