Reminder: Go Vote on May 7th & 24th

The IIAT Government Affairs Team wants to keep you up to date on elections. As the old saying goes: if you don’t vote, don’t complain!

There are two important elections in May:

This Saturday, May 7, you can vote in local elections and on statewide propositions. Many of you will have local elections in your area that will include races for things like Mayor, City Council, city propositions, school board, ISD bonds, etc. Also on May 7, voters will decide whether or not to amend the Texas Constitution by voting on two constitutional amendments, both of which pertain to property taxes.*

  • Proposition One provides property tax relief to homeowners over 65 and/or those who are disabled.
  • Proposition Two provides property tax relief by raising the residential homestead exemption from $25,000 to $40,000.

On May 24, 2022, Texans will have an opportunity to vote in primary runoff elections. There are statewide candidates in both the democratic and republican runoffs, so EVERY Texan should head back out to the polls. Additionally, there are several runoff races for the Texas House, the Texas Senate, and the U.S. Congress. IIAT is financially supporting several of these candidates through its political action committee, IMPACT. If you would like to learn which candidates in your area we are supporting, please contact Lee Loftis or Regan Ellmer.

Thanks to those of you who voted in the March primary election! Most of the candidates running for office nailed down their party’s nomination in March, but 40 races were undecided in the primary because no candidate received 50+% to win outright.

If you would like to learn which candidates in your area we are supporting, please contact Lee Loftis or Regan Ellmer.
