Texas! America used to think of Texas as it’s wild, tough, larger-than-life, brave, brash, patriotic, hopeful, folksy, honest pal — the kind of people who shout “Alamo” and go down swinging and who would never ever endorse someone who called their wife ugly and claimed their dad killed JFK. But then … well, you know what happened. You didn’t turn out to vote! But you can fix it, Texas! You can be the Texas that Texas was always meant to be! Learn how, right here. BBQ!

Go here to see what will be on your ballot when you vote.

Important Information

How do I register to vote?

Go to votesaveamerica.com/register. We're working with vote.org to make this as easy as possible for you, so don't fuck it up.

When do I have to register by?

October 9. Make a calendar reminder. All registration forms must include a handwritten signature and be returned by mail.

Can I register when I get to the voting booth?

This is called same-day registration, and sadly, no you can't. So register now. Then reward yourself with a cookie.

This is my home state, but I won't be home for this election. Can I still vote here?

Yes! It's called an absentee ballot, and it is counted the same as if you had voted in person. Texas is really strict (shocking). So get the details and your absentee ballot here.

Can I vote without leaving my house?

No. But if you have a reason you can't make it to the polls, like you live out of state or you have a disability, you may be able to vote with an absentee ballot. Learn whether you can vote absentee here.

Can I vote early?

Yes! You can vote early in-person between October 22 and November 2, but check back with votesaveamerica.com closer to the election to learn where.

Do I need an ID?

Yes, yes you do. A state driver's license, state election ID certificate, state personal ID card, handgun license, military ID card, U.S. passport or card, U.S. citizenship certificate, voter registration certificate, certified birth certificate, utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or government document all work. Get all the details here from VoteRiders.

Candidates to Watch

Candidates become lawmakers, so get to know them. Here are people from your state that are trying to change the face of politics. Make sure you vote on November 6, because you deserve leaders like them.

Gina Ortiz Jones, Texas 23rd District

“I know there are not a lot of kids who go from reduced lunch to the executive office of the President. My country invested in me, my community invested in me, and that’s what this race is about.”

Gina is an Iraq-War veteran, running for the first time. If elected, Gina will be the first Filipina-American, the first member of the LGBTQ community, and the first Iraq-War vet to represent this district.

Colin Allred, Texas 32nd District

Colin is running for the first time in a very Republican district. After playing in the NFL then becoming a civil rights lawyer, here's why he wants to represent Texans in the U.S. House.
