With Tuesday’s constitutional amendment election behind us, we have had our first experience with Texas’ new restrictive voter ID law.
This year, Texas is calling on its citizens to vote on changes to our state constitution, and Election Day is Nov. 5. The early voting period for this election will run from Oct. 21 through today. During the early voting period, voters registered in Dallas County can vote at any polling location. On Election Day, it will be necessary to vote at your neighborhood precinct polling location.
After witnessing firsthand the transformative experience of a college education myself, I understand the power higher education can have on a person’s life and their community. It is especially important to me that kids from the Dallas community are given a real shot at obtaining a high-quality college education. Over the last couple of weeks, I have been actively promoting this ideal for Dallas-area students.
