Voting requirements

In Texas, voters who participated in the first round of elections for a particular political party may vote in the runoff, but a person cannot cross party lines to vote. So for example, a voter who voted in the Democratic primary can vote in the Democratic Party runoff but not the Republican Party runoff.

A person who didn’t vote in either primary can vote in the runoff of their choice. Voters must be registered to be eligible to vote in the May 24 runoff. The registration deadline for this election is past.

The runoff elections will complete the determination of who will represent the Democratic and Republican parties on the November general election ballot.
