Visit “Am I Registered?” to double check your registration status and information, as well as voting locations and more.
Once you’re all set, encourage friends, family members, and colleagues to register to vote. Our greatest strength as public school employees lies within our numbers, so register, make a plan, and vote! Below is a list of important dates for the primary election coming up:
- Last day to register to vote—Monday, Feb. 5, 2018
- First day of early voting—Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018
- Last day of early voting—Friday, March 2, 2018
- Primary election—Tuesday, March 6, 2018
In Texas, most of our elections are decided by the primaries in March – not the general election in November. That’s why it’s important that we take a stand now! Don’t wait until November to let your voice be heard!
