Voters in the Republican Party across Texas headed to the polls on Tuesday to weigh in on 13 propositions on the GOP ballot.

The propositions on primary ballots are basically surveys that will help the parties decide their priorities.

The Republican Party of Texas said its 13 Primary ballot propositions are opinion polls, not policy referendums.

“You are not voting to make a law but merely saying YES you agree or NO you do not agree with the statement,” the party posted on its website.
