Federal Judges Set Texas Primaries Election Date

The federal judges in San Antonio that previously ruled upon the challenges to Texas Redistricting have set a primary election date.  The Texas Primary Elections will be held Tuesday, May 29.  The runoff date for the Texas primaries will be Tuesday, July 31.

Candidates for all offices in the 2012 Primary will be allowed to file starting tomorrow, March 2, with filing ending Friday, March 9.

Candidates who filed during the previous filing period for the Texas Primaries will have a few options to consider over the next week. They can keep their current candidacy, drop out or switch their candidacy to another race.  According to the court order, official candidate lists have to be turned in to the Texas Secretary of State office by March 12.

Candidates for Texas House and Senate must establish residency in their district by April 9 and maintain residency through the date of the General Election.

Counties will mail out voter registration cards April 25. The finalized redistricting maps were released by the three judge panel on Tuesday after months of controversy.
