Texas Primary Runoff Election: July 31, 2012 (Early Voting 7/23-27)

There are still some runoff elections as a result of undecided primary races. To vote in the runoffs, you must have voted in that party’s primary. [8/1/2012: This is apparently only partially accurate. Please see the CORRECTION at the bottom of this post. – Mike]

For early voting and ballot information in Harris County (my home area, encompassing most of Houston) you can visit this site: http://harrisvotes.org/.

(Non-Texas voters may find some useful info for their localities here: http://gottavote.org/en/?choose-state=true)

I try to maintain some general voting and political reference material here: https://thinkwingradio.com/political-information-and-resources/

Your state may vary, but the information in Texas is as follows:

The early voting period for the July 31st Runoff Election is July 23 – 27, 2012.

From VoteTexas.org: Any registered voter may vote early by personal appearance (in person). Early voting by personal appearance for the July 31, 2012, Primary Runoff Election begins on July 23, 2012, and ends on July 27, 2012. You may vote at any early voting location in your county of registration.

July 31, 2012 – Primary Runoff Election

You can see a list of runoffs for Texas Statewide positions (US Senator, etc.)  here: http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/candidates/,  and here: http://votetexas.gov/voting/what.

You can contact the Texas Secretary of State (SoS) about election-related questions or complaints here: http://votetexas.gov/contact/

New News for all of us….. From http://votetexas.gov/faq/registration#1120:
Q. Does a voter have to vote in the primary election in order to vote in a runoff-election or on November 6, 2012?

A. A voter does not have to vote in the May 29, 2012 primary election in order to qualify to vote in a primary run-off election on July 31, 2012, OR in the general election on November 6, 2012. If you voted in one party’s primary on May 29, 2012, then you may not vote in the other party’s runoff on July 31, 2012. Remember if you signed a petition in lieu of filing fee for a candidate for one party, you many not vote in another party’s primary or primary runoff that voting year (2012). Whether you voted or not in the primary, you may vote for whomever you choose in November. Party affiliations expire on December 31.
