Protect Texas Democracy and Public Health

Tell Texas officials to support the democratic process during a public health crisis.

Texans can vote in person for the November election starting Tuesday, October 13 – six days earlier than the Governor’s initial early voting announcement. We’re pleased to see the early voting period extended, but it’s not a replacement for ensuring that all may vote-by-mail during this pandemic.

Expanding the availability of mail-in ballots, extending the October 5 voter registration deadline, increasing the hours and number of days to early vote, and prioritizing the safety and health of election officials are all necessary steps the Governor and Secretary of State can take to protect our democratic process during upcoming elections.

Send a message to the Governor and Secretary of State to support a fair voting process during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
