Texas election law states that candidates must earn more than 50% of the vote to avoid a runoff election. Today Texas voters will once again head to their local voting center in this year’s Texas primary runoff election. 

Here is some information you need to know about today’s primary runoff election.

In Texas, you can only vote in one party’s primary in a year. So, if you voted in the Republican primary in March, you have to vote in the Republican runoff. 

Registered voters in Hays County have many candidates to vote on in the Democratic and Republican primaries. 

Republican candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives, Texas Attorney General, Texas Railroad Commissioner, and state representative are on the ballot in the Republican Primary runoff election. In Hays County, the District Judge and multiple Precinct Chairs are up for election.

In the Democratic Primary Runoff Election, Hays County residents will have the opportunity to vote for a U.S. House Rep., Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General. Democratic candidates Michelle Gutierrez Cohen and Linda Aguilar Hawkins are facing off for County Commissioner of Precinct 2. The winner will face Republican Mike Gonzalez, the former two-term mayor of Kyle. Precinct 2 is currently held by Republican Mark Jones; Commissioner Jones won his first of three elections in 2010. Jones is now running for Hays County Judge against Democratic incumbent Judge Becerra; the pair will face each other in November. 

Lastly, do not forget to bring a photo ID. Your ID should be up to date or expired up to four years; keep in mind your Texas State ID can NOT be used as a photo ID. Voters who cannot provide a photo ID may fill out a Reasonable Impediment Declaration at the polls. A utility bill, bank statement, government check, or voter registration certificate will be required to use the RID form.

Voting will start at 7 am and end at 7 pm; For more information, visit the Hays County Election website.

No summer internship? No problem!

Mikayla Anding Web Content Contributor Summertime for college students looks like many different things. It could look like going on trips with friends and family, working a job to save up for next year’s school expenses, or, of course, having an internship hopefully pertaining to your major. With the competitive atmosphere we students face to find jobs and internships, maybe not everyone has been so lucky to get their dream […]
