A complete nomination slate is on the Texas Charter Schools Association’s (TCSA) Quality Portal and electronic voting has begun! The voting portal is open from September 13 through October 3, 2016. Cast your vote today!

To Cast Your Vote

Log into the TCSA Quality Portal. Click on “Membership Voting” (top right hand side of page in red font).

There you will find the nomination slate, candidate campaign videos, candidate biographies, and their school’s profile for your review and consideration.

Note: Once you click the Start Your Vote button, you MUST NOT leave the ballot until you are ready to submit your completed ballot.

Fast Facts on Voting
