Early voting for the 2022 Texas primaries has begun, and Feb. 17 is Educator Voting Day. Before you cast your vote, visit ATPE’s nonpartisan advocacy site to research candidates and make informed decisions about which candidates will best support public education. ATPE does not endorse candidates, but we work hard to help you distill the facts about Texas officeholders’ voting records and candidates’ positions on education issues.

Since its launch in 2012, voters have visited more than 1.1 million times to use the easily searchable database of candidate profiles, read blog posts with up-to-date election news and info on the most important education issues, and much more.

If you are new to following Texas education and politics news, Teach the Vote has you covered there as well. Simply visit “The Issues” tab to learn more about the multitude of issues facing Texas educators today. These explainers will guide you through issues that will be under consideration by legislators and other policymakers, as well as ATPE’s official position on these issues.

Under the “Take Action” tab, click “Resources” to access links to outside organizations that will help you learn more about the candidates and the election. These include the official websites of political parties, nonpartisan voter guides from organizations such as the League of Women Voters, and more.

With your vote, you can elect lawmakers who will help strengthen Texas public education. Use the tools and resources on ATPE’s today to decide which candidates you think are best suited to do so.
