Vote Early by Friday — or on Election Day

Only one week remains in the national nightmare of the 2016 elections. Early voting in Texas runs until this Friday, Nov. 4. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.

"While the top of the ticket has drawn much of the attention in this very strange political year, many down-ballot races are looking to be quite close, so it is absolutely crucial for you to turn out and vote in these contests," said TEXPAC Board of Directors Chair Brad Holland, MD.

"TEXPAC has followed the recommendations of practicing physicians across Texas to put together an outstanding list of judicial and legislative incumbents and challengers whom we believe medicine should support. These men and women earned medicine's endorsement. They deserve your vote."

The slate of TEXPAC-endorsed candidates include two Texas Supreme Court members: for Place 5, Justice Paul Green; and for Place 9, Justice Eva Guzman.

You can vote at any early voting location in the county where you live. Contact the Early Voting Clerk for State and County Elections in your county for early voting hours and locations. Polls will be open from 7 am to 7 pm on Election Day. Remember: You need to bring a photo ID or other acceptable form of identification.

"Please vote early, or vote on Election Day, but vote!" Dr. Holland said. "Encourage your family, friends, colleagues, staff, and patients to vote, as well."
