Early voting in Texas started today — Tuesday, October 13 — and lasts until Friday, October 30, and Election Day is November 3!

In past years, comprehensive cannabis bills have been proposed, but only modest reforms — such as a limited, low-THC medical cannabis program — have passed. This year, Texans have the opportunity to vote in a new legislature that could reform the state’s outdated cannabis laws.

Our allies at Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy surveyed candidates for the Texas House, Texas Senate, U.S. House, and U.S. Senate on where they stand on a range of cannabis policies. Check out the voter guide ahead of the upcoming election to find out candidate responses to the survey, as well as voting records for incumbents.

State legislative races are often close contests that can be decided by just a few votes. Don’t miss out on a chance to decide who will represent you in Austin and vote on Texas’ cannabis policy in the 2021 session.

After you’ve had a chance to look at the voter guide, be sure to spread the word by forwarding this message to friends and family and sharing the voter guide on social media.
