Early voting has begun in Central Texas and San Antonio to fill four legislative vacancies created by two mayoral campaigns, a promotion to the Senate and an invitation to work with a former colleague in the Agriculture Department. Another special election will be required after the winner of the SD26 runoff vacates his House seat.

Some San Antonio voters will have influence on two of those races. In SD26, Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer (43%) faces Rep. Jose Menendez (25%). Part of the district overlaps HD123, where former San Antonio council member Diego Bernal (47%) faces Republican state committee member Nunzio Previtera (21%). Elsewhere, former Austin Co. Judge Carolyn Bilski (43%) faces Caldwell attorney Leighton Schubert (33%) in HD13, and former Caldwell Co. Commissioner John Cyrier (46%) faces Bastrop businessman Brent Golemon (25%) in HD17.
