DON’T PUT THAT VOTER REGISTRATION AWAY YET…
PRIMARY RUNOFFS ARE MAY 22
Fewer than 1 in 10 registered voters bothered to cast ballots in Texas’ last midterm primary runoffs–the decisive election for many officials, including Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
This year, there are more than 30 runoffs that span all levels of government. See all the races and candidates here
You DO NOT have to have voted in the primary on March 6 to vote in the runoffs! But if you DID vote in the primary, you can only vote in the runoff of the SAME party you chose in March. You DO NOT have to keep that party affiliation forever…in November, you can vote for candidates of all parties.
And good news: even if you didn’t vote in March because you weren’t registered yet, you can still vote in the runoffs as long as you register by April 23. Check to make sure you are registered here
