Both the Republican and the Democratic party also have propositions on their Primary Election ballot.

The League does not provide information on these propositions.  
Propositions may inform a party platform, but do not have any impact on Texas law. 

TXdecides, a product of Texas Public Radio, explains party propositions: "What's On The Ballot In March? In Addition To Candidates, An Opinion Poll"

Who can vote in the Texas Primaries?

  • Texas has open primaries. That means that ALL Texas voters can participate in one of these events.  Voters who don’t strongly identify with any political party can and should carefully consider the choices and participate in one of the primaries or conventions.
  • But you can only participate in one.  Once a voter has voted in one party, that voter cannot participate in another party’s election or convention.
  • If you signed a candidate petition in 2017 for a Democratic candidate for the 2018 primary, then you can't vote in the Republican primary or runoff in 2018 (and vice versa). Voting in a primary or signing a petition doesn't register you with a party, but it does exclude you from participating in the other party's primary and runoff election in that election year.
