Registration Deadline: Monday is the deadline for Texans to register to vote in order to cast ballots in the March 3 primary elections. Approximately 2.36M Texans are eligible to vote but have not registered.
A record 16.1M Texans were registered in January, an increase of 144K (0.9%) since the November 2019 general election, according to statistics released by the Secretary of State’s office earlier this month. This represents 87% of the estimated voting-age population, the highest percentage since 2008 (91%).
Democratic House Targets: The Texas House Democratic Campaign Committee announced it was targeting 22 districts in an effort to take control the chamber, which would require Democrats to flip a net nine seats. In a memo, the group noted that “the top of the Democratic ticket won a majority of state legislative districts (76-74), laying out a clear path” to reclaiming a majority.
