Early voting begins today, May 19, and runs through Friday, May 23. Visit VoteTexas.gov for full details on early voting. Regardless of which party you affiliate yourself with, there are important runoffs that will be on your ballot—no matter where you live.That's why ATPE encourages all educators to vote in a runoff election.
