AUSTIN, TX – Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade today reminds voters the May 12 Uniform Election is for local elections only. There is no statewide proposition on the ballot.
Recently, questions about a statewide constitutional amendment election involving the homestead property tax exemption have arisen as the result of a bogus email.
“Texans need the facts when they go to the polls, and the fact is there is no constitutional amendment on the May 12 ballot,” said Secretary Andrade. “If you receive an email claiming such a proposition is on the ballot, please disregard it and do not forward it to help stop the spread of this false information.”
