Texas Primary Voting May 29

A federal three-judge panel in San Antonio ruled Thursday that the state's long-delayed primary election would be held on May 29, with a runoff on July 31.


The lingering lawsuits over drawing new political boundaries has prompted the circulation of erroneous emails that incorrectly claim that Texas voters with expired voter registration cards must re-register in order to cast a ballot in this year's spring local and primary elections. Not so, says a directive from the Texas Secretary of State's office, the state's chief election officer.

“As a result of ongoing redistricting litigation, the mailing of new voter registration certificates is delayed. The expiration of your old voter registration certificate on 12/31/2011 does not invalidate your voter registration."

  • If you do not have any changes to your voter registration (i.e., you haven't moved or changed your name), no action is needed at this time.
  • If you remain in your county of registration but have changed your residence address or name, you will need to submit your updated information to your county voter registrar and your new voter registration certificate will be mailed to you from your county voter registrar.
  • If you have changed your residence address to a new county, you will need to submit a new voter registration application no later than the 30th day before Election Day.

Once the court approves interim redistricting maps and counties have the opportunity to finalize precinct lines, the county will issue new voter registration certificates.” George Hammerlein with the Harris County clerk's office confirmed that voters should be able to use their expired voter registration cards if they have not moved. Anyone who is unsure of their status can go to the Harris County voter registrar's website to double-check their status.
