Texas will hold its 2020 runoff elections July 14 to finalize which Democratic and Republican primary candidates will be on the ballot for the November general election. In more than 30 races in the March 3 primary, no candidate exceeded 50% of the vote, bringing about runoff races between the candidates who came in first and second. Here are all of the candidates who will be on the ballot in the primary runoffs for statewide, congressional and legislative offices.
The 2020 primary runoffs were supposed to take place May 26 but were postponed to July 14 in response to the outbreak of the new coronavirus in Texas.
Early voting runs from June 29 through July 10, doubling the length of the early voting period for the runoffs because of the coronavirus pandemic.
If you voted in a party primary in March, you can only vote in the same party’s runoff. You can check out the results of the March 3 primary here.
