Register to vote! This is critical.
To make progress, some politicans must be defeated. We need every fair-minded Texan to vote!
Become a Deputized Voting Registrar
The state of Texas requires a sworn-in deputy registrar to be present wherever voter registration cards are collected. You will need at least one person deputized in each county for which you are registering voters to be on-site staffing the table at all times.
To get deputized, contact your County Voter Registrar, who, in most Texas counties is also the Tax-Assessor Collector.
After the drive, it is the responsibility of the deputy registrar will need to turn the completed cards within five days to the county voter registrar.

Legislators are more likely to pay attention to an email that was individually written, but here are some sample phrases to get you started. Feel free to cut and paste from our Mission page or our Issues page as well.
The women of Texas are very angry about the assault on freedom and privacy.
Already, 28 states require insurance coverage for contraception.
The Texas Sonogram Law is a frightening invasion of privacy and sets a horrible precedent.
Do not allow anyone to play political football with our wombs.
Taking money away from health care creates a ticking, budget time-bomb.
Women are capable of making their own choices.
We do not need politicans to "protect" us.
We're angry, were organized, and we vote.
WOMEN WILL REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER
