ISSUE

The primary runoff elections will take place Tuesday, May 26, and public health concerns around COVID-19 will likely still be looming large. The same may be true by the time of the November general election. To prevent Texans from deciding between voting and protecting their health, our state government should increase the availability of voting by mail.

ACTION TO TAKE

Call your State Representative, State Senator, and Governor Greg Abbott at 512-463-2000. Say:

“My name is _____ and I’m a constituent of {Representative/Senator name}. My zip code is _____. I’m calling to encourage my representative/senator and Governor Abbott to find solutions for our May runoff election, as well as the general election in November, that will allow all voters to vote by mail or otherwise ensure access to the polls in a way that takes into account the current public health crisis. Thank you.”
