Tuesday, Oct. 9, is the last day to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election. Make sure you are registered to vote in this important election.
The Texas Medical Association Political Action Committee (TEXPAC), TMA's political arm, is positioned to help elect an unprecedented eight TMA and TMA Alliance members. This would give TMA more elected members than any other state in the country – a true testament to our organization and the public's trust in our message. (More information on medicine's candidates and the efforts by TEXPAC and the alliance will be published in the November issue of Texas Medicine.)
In addition to physician and alliance members, TEXPAC played a major role in defeating several anti-medicine incumbents and helping some new candidates win open seat elections.
These important dates lead up to Election Day:
First day of early voting – Oct. 22
Last day to apply for ballot by mail – Oct. 30
Last day of early voting – Nov. 2
