Politically, we are in very tumultuous times in the country and especially in Texas. There are heated political races happening all over the country and many have passionate opinions and views. While many are excited about getting their voices heard, some haven't realized they aren't actually registered to vote. Today is the LAST DAY for Texans to register to vote. Texans have until MIDNIGHT TONIGHT to register. Here are some steps for you to figure out if you're registered to vote and if you're not, how you can before the deadline passes.
