This week: The primary runoff and special elections are Tuesday. We will have live coverage here and on our Twitter feed beginning at 7 p.m. CT. The following day, campaign finance reports are due for federal and state officeholders and candidates, with a few exceptions because of runoff timing. We will be updating our Crib Sheets with the latest results. Finally, on Friday – Sunday at the latest – we’ll update our Race Ratings for statewide offices, the Legislature and the Texas Congressional delegation. Check out our new Race Ratings page.
Correction: Our most recent report contained an erroneous reference to 2014 Democratic runoff turnout. We used the primary turnout number instead of the runoff turnout. The post has been updated to strike out the error.
Early voting ended Friday for Tuesday’s primary runoff and special elections.
Across Texas, 647K people voted in the Democratic runoff – 200K (31%) by mail – accounting for 4% of registered voters statewide. Total votes cast already exceeds the total votes cast in each Democratic runoff since 1994 (747K).
