Early voting for the municipal election continues through May 3 before Election Day on May 7.

We’re coming up on mid-term elections. Voting Day isn’t until Nov. 8, but there is a lot on the ballot this cycle. There is also a lot on Texans’ minds as they head to the polls.

But beyond issues, many people are looking for information on what exactly they’re voting for. The Texas Tribune's María Méndez and KAMC's Ryan Chandler join us to help with voters' homework.

Guests:
María Méndez, The Texas Tribune
