VOTE EARLY THIS WEEK IN RUNOFF ELECTIONS
The primary elections for Nueces County voters are not over. Candidates who did not receive more than 50 percent of the vote in their races face the next highest vote-getter in primary runoffs May 22. Polls will be open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Early voting will be held during the same hours May 14-18.
In Texas, 30 races have runoffs. In Nueces County, only three races will be on the ballots: two in the Democratic primary and one in the Republican Primary. All three are high-profile races, especially the one to replace Blake Farenthold, who resigned as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives on April 6.
By the way, you cannot switch parties between the March 6 primaries and the May 22 runoffs. If you voted in the Republican primary, you can only vote in the Republican runoff, and vice versa.
Here are the candidates on Nueces County ballots:
In the Democratic primary:
• Governor: Lupe Valdez and Andrew White
• U.S. District 27: Raul (Roy) Barrera and Eric Holguin
In the Republican primary:
• U.S. District 27: Bech Bruun and Michael Cloud
Any registered voters can cast their ballots in these races, whether or not they voted in the original primary election March 6.
Polling locations can be found on the Nueces County website.
