Welcome to the TYD Voter's Guide.

If you are reading this, congratulations! You are taking the important step to be educated and informed about local politics. The Communications and Policy Teams of the Texas Young Democrats created this guide - the first of its kind for our organization- to break down some information and make it easy for you to learn about candidates,  hear from candidates about what’s at stake this year, and get you information on the voting and campaigning process in Texas.

This guide is designed for first-time voters and young voters, but feel free to share this with anyone you think needs a refresher. You’ll be able to hear from (most) of the candidates themselves, see their policy points and get a print-friendly version to take to the polls!
