Open Positions Up for Election Midterms 2022

The following is from the Secretary of State's website outlining which offices are up for election this November. Check carefully each County's section. Is there a Candidate for each of these offices? If there isn't more than likely there is a Republican on the ballot for that slot unchallenged. We have no Democratic Candidate. So Texas does not only have a problem with getting Democrats to show up to vote but also with finding Candidates to fill the positions available. This is a state wide problem. This not only affects regular positions but also Democratic County Chairs and Precinct Chairs. Many are vacant. That being said there are offices that some counties have that others don't. And they can come up with new ones at any time. To look up vacant positions in for county you can do this by party here:

To find the following information on the SOS website go here:

The SOS posts this information before the deadline to file for office. I am making it a goal of this project to send out notices to the counties of Vacant Positions County Chairs and Precinct Chairs included. The more people know the more they will be willing to participate.
