Viewpoints

If history is an indicator, Texas voters will likely go to the polls on Nov. 2 in underwhelming numbers to decide the fate of eight proposed amendments to the state’s constitution. With no statewide races on the ballot, and a scattering of local elections for city council and school board, turnout typically is low. Nevertheless, early voting is now underway and continues until Oct. 29.

AUSTIN - Important decisions for the State of Texas will soon be in Texans hands. By voting next week in the 2021 constitutional amendment election, you will directly impact the future of Texas. Early voting begins Monday, October 18 and runs through October 29. Election Day is November 2.
