Have you ever thought “there should be a law against this” or “this law makes no sense to me” or “how did that person ever get elected?”
Whatever your issue, making real change happen is such a daunting challenge that many people shrug and say, “I’m just one person, what can I do?” Make it your mission to make a difference. The first step is to get informed on the issues, then find candidates who share your point-of-view.
In Texas, voter turnout is pathetic; for the 2014 midterm election, Texas had a voter turnout of only 28.9%. Because of significantly low voter participation, it only takes a small number of people to make a big impact. Change is the result of people like you getting involved. It is always important to make your voice heard. Your vote matters. In a recent City Council election, the winning candidate won by just two votes.
If you are registered to vote, then make sure to head to the polls for the Primary Election this coming Tuesday, March 3. During the primaries, voters can decide to participate in the Democratic Party primary or the Republican Party primary for the November election.
If you aren’t registered to vote, it is too late to participate in next week’s primary. However, you can still register and participate in the City Council and school board elections in May as well as the general election in November.
