Our Civic Duty: Voting

Posted on November 06, 2017

As a community passionate about public charter schools and public education, we encourage all of you to participate in the election process as a part of our civic duty. Every vote counts!

Our duty to engage in advocacy efforts goes beyond the 140 days the state legislature meets. As this fall voting season kicks off, TCSA would like to remind you that voting is part of our civic duty. For those of us who lead schools, classrooms, or households, we lead by example. Our civic duties are ongoing-there are fall elections, spring primaries, May elections, and the cycle continues every year. 

This year’s ballot for the November 7election includes constitutional amendments, school board candidates, and city bond elections. These critical decisions impact our children and their education, which is why we need you to advocate for children year-round.

There are many ways to participate in our democratic process and the election process is significant. Take time to look up what is on the ballot and make sure you show up to vote. Election day is November 7.

Below are a few links to what is on the ballot around the state of Texas. Visit your county, city or ISD website to learn more about what will be on your ballot. Also don’t forget to look up your elected officials and sign-up for their newsletters to get the latest updates.
