Support College Student Voters With HB 375!
Contact your state representative and tell them to support HB 375 which would require counties to provide a polling place on university campuses with more than 10,000 students.
This is an excellent way to make voting more accessible to young voters, the future leaders of our state.
We saw Texas students show up in big numbers last election cycle. Young people fought to be heard and make their vote count. This is exactly what we want to see more of because we know that when you vote young, you are that much more likely to make it a habit for life. A culture of civic engagement helps us all thrive.
As laid out by the Austin American Statesman Editorial Board last week, Texas has 22 public universities, each with over 10,000 students enrolled but only 7 of those campuses had a polling place on-site for the 2018 election. This is worth noting, especially when you consider that "across the U.S., the average number of registered voters per precinct is about 1,500."
