Get Out the Vote: Texas Primary 2024


In Texas state politics, November isn’t the real moment of truth in an election year – March is.

The March primary is often where races for seats in the Texas Legislature are really contested; in many cases, the primary winner is effectively rubber-stamped as the eventual winner of the seat in November’s general election.

That’s why it’s so important for health care and hospital advocates to be engaged and Get Out the Vote this March. The candidates Texans choose at the polls will make decisions affecting the health of hospitals – and their patients – for years to come as hospitals continue to navigate financial pressures driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, issues with access to care and much more.

The Texas Hospital Association is stressing the importance of its member hospitals getting out the vote either during the early voting period between Feb. 20 and March 1, or on Election Day, March 5.

On this page, you can download resources to help hospital staff spread the word to make a plan and vote: digital images for social media or for printing to use around the hospital; a poster for elevators, employee break rooms and patient waiting areas; a sample email that organization CEOs can send to hospital staff to stress the importance of voting; and more.

In heavily contested races, as we’re seeing across Texas this primary season, every vote counts. Help THA Get Out the Vote. Mobilize your hospital community today!
