TAA PAC ready for general election

Synopsis

With only a month or so until early voting begins for the general election, here’s a look at the candidates the Texas Apartment Association is supporting this November.


Key takeaways

  • The Texas Apartment Association Political Action Committee is supporting a number of candidates in the general election. 
  • October 5 is the last day to register to vote in the November general election.
  • Expanded early voting for the November general election begins October 13 and ends October 30. The early voting period was extended because of the coronavirus pandemic.
  • The general election will be held November 3.

With the November 3 general election just over two months away, and early voting starting next month, the Texas Apartment Association Political Action Committee has been busy talking to candidates and getting input from local associations.

See the current list of candidates supported by TAAPAC. As the election nears, additional candidates may be added.

Texas ballots will be extremely long, with races for U.S. Senate and Congress, the state courts, the Texas Legislature, many local offices, and in some cases, local bond issues or other initiatives for voter consideration. Straight-ticket voting by party affiliation is no longer allowed in Texas.

The early voting period for the November election has been extended due to the pandemic. Early voting runs October 13-30.

Important dates to note for the November election:

  • October 5, last day to register to vote
  • October 13, early voting begins
  • October 23, last day a request for a mail-in ballot can be received (not postmarked) Note: limitations apply for voting by mail; see votetexas.gov
  • October 30, early voting ends
  • November 3, Election Day (Mail-in ballots must also be postmarked by 5 p.m. on election day with some exceptions for military or overseas ballots.)

If you are not yet registered to vote, you may do so until October 5. You can determine whether you are already registered to vote, and download a voter registration application if needed, at www.votetexas.gov.

The application cannot be submitted online, but must be printed, signed and mailed to your local county voter registrar by October 5.
