Reminder: Early Voting Starts Feb. 20! 

It’s that time of year again: early voting season! As we get closer to the primary election date (March 5), it’s hugely important that we make our voices heard in this upcoming primary election. As the war on public education — and public educators — continues, we must elect candidates who not only oppose school vouchers but will also put their full support behind funding our schools to thrive.  

For the March 5 primary, early voting starts Tuesday, Feb. 20, and runs until Friday, March 1. You can check your registration status before voting, and keep in mind that a photo ID is required in order to cast a ballot. 

Election Resources & Opportunities 

Be sure to visit the Texas AFT Voter Education Hub to access information about elections, voting, accommodations, and more. Additionally, Texas AFT COPE endorsements for candidates across Texas are housed there so that you can not only make your plan to vote but also get suggestions on who to vote for in this critical primary election. 

In addition to voter information, Common Cause TX is hosting virtual training sessions on voting rights and poll monitoring. The organization’s Election Protection Program, which is non-partisan, “makes sure eligible voters know how to cast their ballots and ensure they are counted.” Taking advantage of these resources will not only help advance our cause but also work to protect our democracy in this tumultuous time.
