What you should know about the Runoff Elections.

Texas has a history of a dismal turnout rate in primary elections. Less than18% of registered voters cast a ballot this year. 

That's a disappointing statistic, but also an opportunity for Democrats if they can turn out voters for the primaries and use that turn out to prime Democrats to turn out for the mid-term General Election in November to beat Republicans.

Early voting runs from May 16-20.

Election Day is May 24.

If you voted in a party primary in March, you can vote only in that same party’s runoff.

Voters who didn't cast a ballot in the primary can vote in either party’s runoff.
