VOTE

Anderson County will host its Democratic Primary run-off election Tuesday.

The original primary run-off election was set for May 26, but changed due to state mitigation measures made by Gov. Greg Abbott.

The only two races on the ballot in Anderson County are between Royce West and Mary “MJ” Hegar for U.S. Senator and Chrysta Castaneda and Roberto R. “Beto” Alonzo for Railroad Commissioner.

If you voted in the Democratic primary you are eligible to vote in the runoff. If you did not participate in the Republican or Democratic Primary election, you are eligible to vote in the runoff.

There are no Republican run-off races in Anderson County this year. If you voted in the Republican Primary, you are not eligible to vote in the Democratic runoff.

Those voting are asked to have ID available upon arrival.

The polling places for the July 14 election have been consolidated and will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the following polling places:
