As members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) may know, election day for the Primary Runoff is coming up on May 24, and early voting is happening now through Friday!
TRTA members, we encourage you to vote in this very important election. Voter turnout is often very low in primary elections and even lower in runoff elections. Only 18% of registered voters in Texas voted in the March 2022 primary. Please make sure you have a plan to vote in the runoff!
What is the primary runoff election?
This election is for races that did not have a majority winner during the March 1 primary election. The winners from each party will advance to the November 8 general election.
Who can vote?
First, make sure you’re registered to vote. Please note, if you did not vote during the primary in March, you can still vote in the runoff in either party! However, if you voted in the March primary, you must vote in the same party primary during the runoff.

Encourage others to vote
Call, text, or talk to your friends, family, and colleagues and encourage them to vote! Numbers really matter in a Primary Election—even more so in a runoff—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!
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!
Share that you voted on social media
We love these great images provided by Texans for Strong Public Schools that you can share on social media after you have voted. You can also take a selfie and post it on Facebook!
