The clock is ticking, Texas! Ensure your voice is heard by registering to vote or verifying your voter registration status before the crucial deadline on Feb. 5. The upcoming March 5 primary elections are a pivotal moment for public education, with hotly contested races across the state, and your participation is key.
Public education in Texas is under attack, and certain victories or losses could play a major role during the next legislative session in Austin, as well as during the next session of Congress in Washington D.C.
Here’s some steps you can take now to make sure your voice is heard.
- Register to Vote
If you haven’t registered yet, now is the time! Visit the official Texas Secretary of State’s website or your local voter registration office to complete the process. Be sure to have your valid photo ID on hand.
- Verify Your Registration
Already registered? Take a moment to double-check your voter registration status. It’s better to discover a problem now than before it’s too late on Election Day.
- Remind Others:
Spread the word! Encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to register or confirm their registration. The more people participating in the democratic process, the stronger our collective voice becomes. Make sure to spread the word in-person, on the phone, via text, and on social media!
