For the U.S. House of representatives March 1st marks an important day. No, this is nothing like the U.S presidential election but it’s just as important. Especially when all 435 seats and a third of the U.S. Senate seats are up for the taking. This year Texas is one of 39 states with state level elections, including other state offices.

Looking for the poll hours? Polls start between 7a.m. to 7p.m. on Election Day but if you’re looking to vote make sure you check your county’s Election Official (County Election Official). You can also do a search on the League of Women’s Voters(

A political subdivision may hold an election on:

  • the first Saturday in May an odd-numbered year
  • the first Saturday in May in an even-numbered year, for an election held by a political subdivision other than a county
  • the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November

Beware though, hundreds of applications are being rejected due to what seems to be not knowing the new election rules. Even Local Election Workers are finding themselves trying to understand the new procedures. They’ve been also swamped with little to no help or information from the Texas Secretary of States Office. Seems tough but add on trying to train someone under the pressure from advising counties to make new room for the new election changes at the same time.

March 1st seems that it would make history for all states almost like dethroning Dukes and lords who have been seated for more than 20 yrs. This election day make sure you stay up-to-date with the procedures and information to help out the staff at your local voting center.
