Early vote now in primary runoff election

Early vote now in primary runoff election

Early voting is happening this week and next at four polling places listed below. Polls will be closed Friday, July 3, 2020 through Sunday, July 5, 2020 for the Fourth of July Holiday. Polls open each day at 8:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. except for Tuesdays when polls stay open late until 7:00 p.m.

Early voting began on Monday of this week in the July 14, 2020 Texas Primaries Runoff Elections. Runoffs? Yes, runoffs. Every reader should remember the March 3, 2020 Orange County Republican Party Primary Election and the Orange County Democratic Party Primary Election on the same day where Orange County registered voters selected their political party’s nominees to have their names placed on the ballot to run for office in the upcoming November 3, 2020 General Election.

Well, in one GOP Primary race and in two Democratic Party Primary races none of the candidates on the Primary ballot won their nomination outright with at least fifty percent plus one more vote of the total votes in that race. That means that the two top vote getters in those three races are put in opposition against each other in a runoff election ballot.

Our Republican readers have but one race on their runoff election ballot, the race for Chief Justice of the Texas 9 th Court of Appeals located in Beaumont, TX. Running for the GOP nomination in this runoff race is Jay Wright, a Conroe, TX Attorney, and former prosecutor with the Nueces County Attorney’s Office.
