I'm so ready to vote now! Who am I voting for?

The 2020 General Election is the first election without the option to cast a straight party ballot. Instead, you will have to select the Democrat in each race individually. Texas Republicans took this right away from you because they think it will help them win races, create longer lines, and leave voters confused. Don't let them be right by remembering "Don't stop at the top. Vote for EVERY Democrat!" You can find the complete list of the 2020 Democratic Nominees here.
