The early voting in person for the primary runoff election will begin on Monday, July 23rd and continue for one week only until Friday, July 27th. The Elections Office at 111 N. Glass will be open from 8 am to 5 pm on Monday through Thursday and from 7 am to 7 pm on Friday. All registered voters in Victoria County are eligible to vote in this runoff election.

A temporary branch voting location for early voting in person will be opened at the Bloomington Fire Station on Thursday, July 26th from 8 am to 5 pm and on Friday, July 27th from 7 am to 7 pm. Any person eligible to vote in the primary runoff may vote at this location.

If you attended a Democratic or Republican party convention or voted in the primary election on May 29th you may vote only in the same party's primary runoff. Those people who did not attend the convention of another party or who did not vote in the primary may vote in the primary runoff.

You may not vote in the primary runoff if you have signed a petition for an independent candidate but you will be eligible to vote in the general election in November.

The runoff election is not less important than the primary, it only has fewer names on the ballot. The primary election requires a majority vote to gain the nomination of the party. When more than two people vie for the same nomination a majority vote is still possible but less likely. These candidates on the primary runoff have not yet received the nomination of the party. Only through winning the runoff election will they be able to have their name placed on the general election ballot.

For more information concerning the primary runoff election you may contact the Elections Office at elections@vctx.org or at 111 N. Glass in downtown Victoria or by calling 576-0124 during regular business hours of 8 am to 5 pm weekdays.

It may seem like a cliche when you have heard it so many times but, every vote in an election counts.
