Do you have big plans for the weekend? Maybe you'll be traveling to Austin for ATPE committee meetings, catching the latest blockbuster, mowing the lawn or simply recuperating from STAAR testing. Whatever your to-do list might look like, we'd like to ask you to add the following quick and simple tasks to your list:
- Make sure you are registered to vote, and
- Remind your friends, family members and colleagues to register by Monday.
- You do not have to declare a party affiliation in order to register to vote.
- If you voted in the Democratic party primary back in March, you are only eligible to vote in the Democratic party's runoff in May.
- If you voted in the Republican party primary back in March, you are only eligible to vote in the Republican party's runoff in May.
- If you did not vote at all during the March primary election, you are still eligible to vote in the runoff and may participate in either the Republican or Democratic party runoff. All you have to do is make sure you're registered by Monday's deadline.
- In November, voters may choose any candidate on the general election ballot, regardless of their party affiliations.
- Early voting for the runoff begins Monday, May 19, and runs through Friday, May 23.
