The Texas Legislature should enact legislation requiring that voters provide valid photo identification in order to cast a ballot in any and all elections conducted in the state of Texas.

The Texas Legislature should place on the next constitutional amendment election ballot a proposition to protect private property from being taken for economic purposes.

Every governmental body in Texas should be required to limit any annual increase in spending to the combined increase of population and inflation, except for additional spending authorized by a vote of the people or for official state of emergencies declared by the federal or state government.

In order to address the inequity of homeowner's property taxes increasing at a rate far above the rate of inflation, the current 10% cap on the rate of increase of appraised value for all homesteads shall be reduced to 5% or less.


Travis County voters may vote at any early voting location.

Early voting runs Feb. 21-March 3.

Polls are open Monday-Saturday, 7am-7pm and Sunday, noon-6pm, except where indicated otherwise.
