As members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) know, early voting for the Texas Primary Election began Monday, February 14 and ended Friday, February 25.
If you did not already cast your ballot, you still have a chance to vote in the Primary Election on election day: Tuesday, March 1!
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. Be sure to grab some family members, friends, and neighbors to go with you as you head to the polls to cast your very important vote!
Turnout so far in the Republican Primary is only at 2.7% of all registered voters in the state, while turnout in the Democratic Primary is at 1.7%. There are over 1.5 million retirees and active educators! In many cases in Texas, the Primary Election determines who wins the General Election. Now is a great time to supercharge your voting power and encourage all the educators you know to do the same!
