As members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) know, today, March 1, 2022, is Primary Election Day in Texas!
TRTA members, we encourage you to vote in this very important election. Far fewer voters make it to the polls during a Primary Election than during the November General Election.
Early voting wrapped up on Friday, February 25. Just over one million people voted early (or by mail) in the 2022 Republican Primary and 620,000 people voted early (or by mail) in the 2022 Democratic Primary.
That means there was roughly a 6% turnout on the Republican side and a 3.6% turnout on the Democratic side.
Numbers really matter in the Primary Election and can make all the difference when choosing candidates who support issues that have an impact on Texas public education retirees and pre-retirees.
The road to influencing future policy outcomes starts NOW, well ahead of the 2023 Legislative Session!
So, get out today and VOTE! Be sure to grab some family members, friends, and neighbors to go with you.
