Early voting underway for Texas' primary runoff races

Early voting underway for Texas' primary runoff races

Early-voting sites are the Brazos County Election Administrator's Office, Arena Hall and Galilee Baptist Church in Bryan and the College Station Utilities Training Facility and Memorial Student Center in College Station.

Tom Green County Republican voters also have only one race on the runoff ballot.

For the May 22 runoff, Stein says he's watching the Republican runoff for retiring Congressman Ted Poe's seat in District 2 and the Democratic runoff to decide who will take on incumbent Congressman John Culberson in competitive District 7.

In Brazos County, the early voting schedule is Monday through Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., and Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Meanwhile, Republicans will vote in the Bexar County GOP Chair race between Cynthia Brehm and Jo Ann Ponce Gonzalez. In more than 30, state-level primaries across the State of Texas, no candidate drew more than 50-percent of the vote, sparking runoffs between the candidates that came in first and second.

Election Day is May 22.

Texas voters return to the polls this week in partisan runoff elections to finish up the March 6 primary election process and turnout has historically been extremely low. The victor faces Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in the fall.
