Early voting for Texas primary runoff elections start Monday and will continue through Friday – no voting will occur on the weekend.
The formal Election Day for the runoffs is on May 22.
You might be asking: Didn’t we just have an election?
Yes, on March 6, Texans voted in primary races for statewide and federal offices. But in dozens of those races, no candidate won more than 50 percent of the vote, which meant runoff elections in those races.
Some of the most high-profile runoffs include the contest between Lupe Valdez and Andrew White to be the Democratic nominee who will challenge Republican incumbent Greg Abbott in the race for Texas governor.
Another attention-grabbing race is the four-way fight to replace retiring congressman Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, in U.S. House District 21 among two Republican candidates – Chip Roy and Matt McCall – and two Democrats, Mary Wilson and Joseph Kopser.
