Did you know that over 600 women have stepped up to run for office in the upcoming March 6 Democratic primary?!? That is a lot of fabulous women who believe their efforts can help make Texas a more progressive state and ultimately lead to more effective human rights legislation, an environmental protection mindset that protects our home for future generations and economic opportunity for all of us, including the most at risk populations.  Here at March On! Texas, we are proud to support the efforts of all these women as they seek to change the face of politics in Texas.

We know it can be daunting to find the information to become an informed voter when there are so many elections underway at the same time. With that in mind, we developed a list of all the races in Texas that have Democrats running in the primary on March 6. HERE you will find a spreadsheet with statewide races, followed by state legislative races by district and finally elections by county. We hope this will help you get the information needed to make an informed decision at the polls.

But, we decided to take it a step further. HERE, you will find a list of March ON! Texas Favorites. We reviewed many candidates, mostly in statewide and state legislature elections, and developed a list of our favorite candidates. These women have a combination of policy views, experience, campaign effectiveness and other intangibles that we feel makes them great choices for the office they seek. We hope you will give them your consideration and support.

2018 has the potential to drastically change the face of politics in Texas. But, these candidates, whether on our favorites list or not, can not do it on their own. Want the blue tsunami to be a reality? Then these folks need your time, your money and your vote. Get involved and let’s turn Texas progressive!
