This November, there will be special elections in three House Districts to replace retiring legislators. Texas and over 20 other states in the U.S. cannot collect signatures to place an issue on the ballot for a vote to change state law. Additionally, in 1997, Texas passed a state law requiring that all drug laws be enforced and changed at the state rather than local level. Because of these limitations, Texans must rely on our state elected officials, specifically our state representatives and state senators.
If you live in House Districts 28, 100 or 148, you are in a district that will be holding a special election. Not sure what your district is? Find out who represents you.
