The November election is right around the corner, and the time to register is now. With everything that is at stake for educators, it is so important that we make our voices heard at the polls.

In Texas, there is no same-day registration, and you must be registered at least 30 days prior to an election to vote in it. The voter registration deadline is Oct. 11, so make sure that you are registered today. Early voting begins Monday, Oct. 24, and Educator Voting Day lands on Thursday, Oct. 27. Learn more about the candidates at teachthevote.org and build your sample ballot at vote411.org.

In this episode of The ATPE Podcast, we ask ATPE Senior Lobbyist Monty Exter to tell us everything we need to know about the upcoming election. From important dates to what is at stake for public education, find out how you can support public education at the polls.
