Every election matters and every vote counts.
When voting for state and local officials, choices have very direct and concrete effect on the daily lives of the community.
The first step to making your voice heard is registering to vote.
The people you elect decide:
1. How much to fund public schools
2. How much time, money, and attention is spent on standardized testing
3. Whether to support or undermine public education
4. Whether to privatize education in Texas
