Harris County voters will decide 18 primary runoff elections Tuesday. There are 12 Democratic races -- including four state house contests and two for constable. Republicans have six races to decide, including the local party chairman.
“In the Democratic party, you also have the sheriff on the ballot, on the Republican party you also have a state house district,” says county Clerk Stan Stanart who reminds voters to check your polling location before heading out to cast your ballot.
“The Democratic party has 85 locations serving the whole county and the Republicans have 78, so you must go to HarrisVotes.com to find where you will be voting on Election Day,” he says.
Stanart's office already processed more than 49,000 early ballots last week.
“They are always low in a runoff, but this is probably a little higher than normal, meaning people are paying attention and people want to have their voice heard,” he says. “The turnout on Election Day is all dependent on the voters.”
Polls are open from 7am to 7pm.
