January has been so busy that I’m suddenly surprised to find us at the end of it, but there are even more fun things happening in February, and I hope you’ll join me at one of these events.
First, and most importantly, are you registered to vote? Have you moved and need to change your registration? You can verify your voter registration. Please check with your friends and neighbors to make sure they are also registered.
You must be registered by February 5th to vote in the March 6th primary!
And now, I’m thrilled to introduce you to an exciting new grassroots movement: Texas Women Rising. We are a group of 34 Texas women running as Democrats for state legislature, working together to increase awareness, raise funds, and above all support each other in our shared drive to turn Texas blue. Find us on Facebook and Twitter to get involved today!
