As Republican primary voters head to the polls, there aren’t just candidates on the ballot—there are also 10 ballot propositions. Voters are asked to vote “Yes” to agree with each proposition, or “No” to disagree.

The outcome of these propositions will be used to help guide the party’s policy priorities with regard to the distinct legislative priorities and party platform as determined by delegates in the state convention.

Texas should eliminate all property taxes within ten (10) years without implementing a state income tax.”

Vaccine Mandate

“Texans should not lose their job nor students be penalized for declining a COVID-19 vaccine.”
