The sample ballots for the March 1 primary elections were released on the county election website this week. The Republican ballot has 10 propositions in addition to the seated positions. There are no propositions on the Democratic ballot.
The ten propositions that will require a yes or no vote from voters in the Republican primary are:
In light of the federal government’s refusal to defend the southern border, Texas should immediately deploy the National Guard, Texas Military Forces, and necessary state law enforcement to seal the border, enforce immigration laws, and deport illegal aliens.
Texas should eliminate all property taxes within ten (10) years without implementing a state income tax.
Texans should not lose their jobs, nor should students be penalized, for declining a COVID-19 vaccine.
Texas schools should teach students basic knowledge and American exceptionalism and reject Critical Race Theory and other curricula that promote Marxist doctrine and encourage division based on creed, race, or economic status.
Texas should enact a State Constitutional Amendment to defend the sanctity of innocent human life, created in the image of God, from fertilization until natural death.
“This proposition addresses the pro-life issue,” said James Wesolek, communications director for the Republican Party of Texas.
The Republican-controlled Texas Legislature should end the practice of awarding committee chairmanships to Democrats.
Texas should protect the integrity of our elections by verifying that registered voters are American citizens, restoring felony penalties and enacting civil penalties for vote fraud, and fighting any federal takeover of state elections.
Texas should ban chemical castration, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and genital mutilation surgery on all minor children for sex transition purposes.
Texas parents and guardians should have the right to select schools, whether public or private, for their children, and the funding should follow the student.
Texans affirm that our freedoms come from God and that the government should have no control over the conscience of individuals.
“This proposition affirms our God-given rights and limits of government power,” said Wesolek.
