Don’t Forget to Vote!

October 8, 2018

While our focus at Houston GPS continues to be local school board issues, we cannot forget that so many of the policies enacted at the state and national level impact our schools and our kids. Tuesday, October 9, is the last day to register to vote in the 2018 elections. The November ballot will include national, state, and county races.

One of the major issues that Texans continue to face is the funding of public schools in our state. How do our legislators approach school funding and what steps are being taken to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality public education? How committed are our elected officials to promoting equity throughout the system? How do policies and regulations across industries affect public education? These are the questions we should consider as we head to the polls this year.

Now is the time for citizens to make sure that their voices are heard. If you’re already registered, make sure your family, friends, and neighbors are registered as well. Establish a plan for voting and take someone with you to the polls! Election day is Tuesday, November 6, and early voting runs from October 22 through November 2, 2018.
