Who should vote in the Texas Primaries?

The upcoming Texas primary is an extremely important election in Texas!

Voters in the Texas primaries and conventions choose who will run for office in the General Election. For many communities in Texas, their elected officials are chosen in the primary election because many districts heavily favor one party over the other.

The Republican and Democratic Parties choose their candidates in a primary election. The Libertarian and Green Parties choose their candidates in party conventions.

Texas has open primaries. That means that ALL Texas voters can participate in one of these events.

Voters who don’t strongly identify with any political party can and should carefully consider the choices and participate in one of the primaries or conventions. But you can only
participate in one. Once a voter has voted in one party, that voter cannot participate in another party’s election or convention.

The League encourages all registered voters to participate in the Texas Primary Election and vote for the best candidates. Don’t forget, voting in a primary does not commit you to vote for a particular candidate in the General Election.
