There are 12 days left to register to vote and 25 days until the start of early voting. Keep working to register students, staff, parents, and community members. With early voting right around the corner, let staff and community members know about upcoming candidate forums so they can meet candidates and become informed voters. If you don’t have any planned, reach out to your nearest League of Women Voters and Texas Retired Teachers Association to help pull one together. Informed voters make good citizens.

To do:
1.     Register:
b.     If you’re not registered, apply to register to vote here.
c.      Invite voter registrars (League of Women Voters or Texas Retired Teachers) to register students and staff at campus and district events.
d.     Use this link to let the Texas Civil Rights Project know if you are registering students to vote.  It will give you credit for registering voters next time they update their map!
2.     Research-
a.     Teach the Vote has asked all candidates to fill out their questionnaire with education-related questions. Check what your candidates have to say.
b.     The League of Women Voters of Texas has a Voter’s Guide with candidate responses to their questionnaire.  
c.      Go meet candidates in your area. Attend candidate forums and ask questions about things that are important to you!
3.     Get ready to VOTE!
