Early voting begins February 14 and runs through February 25 for the March 1 primary election. See who’s on the ballot, what identification you’ll need at the polls to vote, polling places in your area, and more, at www.votetexas.gov.
During the primary election, voters will determine who will represent the Democratic and Republican parties on the November general election ballot. Runoff elections for the primaries, if needed, will be held on a date set by Gov. Greg Abbott. Voters may vote in either the Democratic or the Republican primary, but not both.
In addition to statewide primaries for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, comptroller and agriculture commissioner, four of the state’s Supreme Court justices are up for re-election, along with all members of the Texas Senate and House, due to the redistricting process completed during a Special Legislative Session last year.
Texas Senate, House races
More than 20 House members and a handful of senators have announced they will not seek re-election to their district, due to retirement or running for a different office. Many will face competitive primary races in March, though the general election races in November are typically not as challenging for the dominant party of the district.
TAA and member involvement
Refer to the Texas Apartment Association Political Action Committee’s list of endorsed candidates when making your plans to vote. TAA’s Legislative Committee met February 1 to review candidate recommendations and approve PAC endorsements.
Many thanks to local association staff and volunteers who provided important input on these races, and who have traveled with TAA Government Affairs team members to meet with candidates and deliver PAC contributions.
