2018 General Election - TURF Voter Guide

TURF honoredTexans Uniting for Reform & Freedom (TURF) compiled this Voter Guide to gauge candidates positions on toll roads, transportation policy (including accountability and transparency), and property rights. Based on each candidate's answers to our survey, they received a grade. If an incumbent is running for office, we placed an (I) next to their name and list their average grade on TURF’s Report Cards based on their actual voting record. TURF Report Cards are published after each legislative session is completed. View the results of the 2018 Voter Guide below. NOTE: We focussed on contested general election races. If you do not see a candidate’s name or race below, it’s because he/she did not return our Voter Guide candidate survey.
