Filing for the Republican primaries in March begins tomorrow! The filing window is open from November 11 to December 11, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.

Do you want to run for office? Learn all the information you need to know!

Candidates who wish to file in person can submit their application for a place on the ballot at the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) headquarters tomorrow Saturday November 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you plan to run in a district covering multiple counties, you will file with RPT. If you plan to run in a district contained in one county, you will file with the local county party. If filing with the local county party, contact them to determine hours and location(s) where they will be accepting applications.  For a complete list of local county party offices, click here.

November 11 is also Veteran’s Day. The city of Austin is honoring our veterans with a parade through downtown, causing some street closures in the area. Find more information on which streets are closed here.

If you do not plan to run for office, joining the Grassroots Club is a great way to support the party and help elect Republicans across Texas. The fight to keep Texas red in 2018 is about to officially begin and we need your help!
