Early voting underway for July 31 primary runoff
By Elsa Maxey
Early voting for the July 31st Primary Runoff Election is underway and it ends this Friday, July 27. Registered voters are reminded that if they did not vote in the Primary Election this past May, they can still vote in the run-off.
But those that voted in that Primary Election may not cross party lines. In other words, if you voted in the Democratic Primary, you may vote only in the Democratic Party Primary Run-Off Election, and if you voted in the Republican Primary, you many vote only in the Republican Party Primary Run-Off Election. Early votes may be cast this week at the locations listed below from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Friday.
Democratic and Republican sample ballots are found on the county’s website for the primary runoffs. A U.S. Senator, two railroad commissioner races, and a Texas Supreme Court Justice Place 4 are listed on the Republican Primary Runoff, and in voting precincts in District 26, the race for State Representative in that district shows Sugar Land’s Jacquie Chaumette and Rick Miller in the run for the elected office to be vacated by State Representative Charlie Howard. On the Democratic ballot, there’s a U.S. Senator runoff race.
This upcoming Tuesday, July 31, is the date of the election after which time the votes will be counted to determine the winners to be placed on the November ballot.
