Twitter: Join me in signing a statement of support for H.B. 375 to designate polling stations on college campuses because voting should be accessible to Texas students.

Facebook/LinkedIn/Instagram: According to the Texas Tribune, Texas had one of the lowest voter turnouts in the country with only 28.3% of the population voting in 2014. Although voting did increase by 18% in the 2018 midterms, it is still abysmal by any standard. While voting amongst all groups increased in the last election cycle, young adults still had the worst voter turnout. An estimated 31% of eligible people ages 18 to 29 voted in the 2018 midterms, according to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE). To tackle this issue, HB 375 requires that polling places be made accessible to young adults on institutions of higher education. HB 375 recognizes the importance of polling place accessibility and ensures that students on campus have the opportunity to cast their ballot at a convenient location on campus which is a first step to increase voter turnout.
