Texas Decides is a project from the Texas Station Collaborative, which includes KERA, KUT in Austin, Texas Public Radio in San Antonio, Marfa Public Radio and Houston Public Media.
The project started in the fall of 2016. Leading up to the election, public radio stations across Texas asked listeners to submit questions related to national, statewide and local politics. After listeners voted on their favorite questions, reporters tackled everything from why Texas is so red to why voter turnout is so low in the state.
At the start of the 85th Legislature, stations teamed up again to ask listeners to submit questions they have about the complicated lawmaking process in Texas. After listeners vote to narrow down to their most pressing questions, reporters will explore them to find the answers. Stories will be published throughout the remainder of the session this spring.

KERA asked for questions about this year's election, and you delivered! Over the past few months, your public radio stations across Texas have compiled queries from voters all over the state. It’s part of a project we're calling "Texas Decides."
