Welcome to our SPECIAL EDITION of the Texas Revolution Report! It's brought to you by our 2021 Members, who make everything we do possible. Can you support the Texas Revolution Report by chipping in today?

★★★

EARLY VOTING STARTS TODAY!! Early voting runs from today (Mon 19th) to Tues, April 27th. Voting hours can vary per locality—some localities are only from 8 am - 5 pm, many are open from 7am - 7pm. Check with your local election administration to find hours. Click here to find your polling location on our resources page. 

Editors Note: We have nearly 50 locally endorsed candidates, all as local as local gets. Remember folks, #BernieWasMayorFirst. We will never turn Texas progressive (or even blue) without winning locally first. Winning locally is how the Far Right took over Texas. Winning locally is how we reclaim it.
