The lives of everyday Texans are on the ballot today. Vote for them.

This election is not about sticking it to Trump or to Conservatives. It’s not even about winning or turning Texas blue. This election is about improving the lives of everyday Texans.

Children. People with preexisting conditions. Women. LGBTQIA+ people. Immigrants. Working families. We’re all on the ballot today. Will you vote with us?

We have a responsibility as voters.

As voters, we have the power to shape the future of Texas.

Texas is the fastest growing state in the nation, but too often, our politics do not reflect our people. We can change that!

Progressives are mobilizing across the state. In the past few weeks, Texas has seen historic voter registration numbers and early voter turnout has shattered records. Young people are showing up at the polls. And who can blame them?

This could be the most important election to date. For the first time in a generation, there’s a Democrat running in every single district. There are more candidates who are women, people of color and LGBTQIA+ on the ballot than ever before. And if that weren’t exciting enough, the road to flipping Congress runs through Texas.

But in order to reap the benefits of one of the most exciting midterms in history, we must vote.

Today is your last chance to vote.

It’s going to take everyone showing up at the polls to put progressives in office. If you are able to vote, then you must cast your ballot today.

Don’t miss your final chance to be a part of this historic turnout and make your voice heard. And if you’ve already voted, encourage your friends and families to get out and vote.
