While there is a presidential election this year, eligible Texans can also cast their ballots for many Texas officials running for office at the federal, state and local levels.
This includes representatives in the U.S. and Texas houses and the following elected offices:
1 U.S Senator (Ted Cruz)
1 of 3 Railroad Commissioners
15 State Senators
7 State Board of Education members
3 members of the Texas Supreme Court
3 members of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals
5 Chief Justices and various justices for Texas Courts of Appeals
Lower-level judges and local county offices will also appear on the ballot:
Various district judges, including on criminal and family courts
County Courts at Law
Justices of the Peace
In the March 5 primary election, Texans will be narrowing candidates for these elected offices within the Democratic and Republican parties. The candidate who wins the majority, or more than half, of votes in a race will face candidates from other parties in the November general election. If no candidate gets a majority of votes in a race, the top two vote-getters will head to a May 28 primary runoff election. The Green and Libertarian parties select their candidates through a series of local conventions beginning March 12 and a state convention that each party needs to announce by then.
In Texas, voters can only vote in one party’s primary and runoff or in a third party’s convention.
