Early voting begins May 16 and ends May 20 for the May 24 run-off primary election. The winners of this election will advance to the November 8 general election.
On the ballot are three statewide offices for Republicans and four statewide offices for Democrats. There are also a handful of local and departmental races.
Under state law, voters who voted in the March 1 primary must vote in the second round of that same party’s election. Those who did not vote in the primary can vote in the Republican Party or Democratic Party runoff, according to a press release from the Texas secretary of state.
“The candidates you’ll be voting for have reached the final round of their party’s primary elections, and this is your chance to decide who you want to run for those public offices in November,” said Texas Secretary of State John Scott, in “Make sure you do your research on the candidates, make an informed decision, and prepare to make your voice heard in the election runoff by visiting www.votetexas.gov.”
