KENS 5 Election Info Center: Early voting starts Monday for the Texas primary runoff election

The Texas joint primary runoff election will be held July 14. The early voting period will take place Monday and end Friday, July 10.

SAN ANTONIO — The Texas joint primary runoff election will be held July 14. The early voting period will take place Monday, June 29, and end Friday, July 10.

On May 27, the Texas Supreme Court determined that the lack of immunity alone is not a “disability” for purposes of voting by mail. 

The court also stated that a voter can take into consideration "aspects of their own health and health history" when determining whether in-person voting will cause a likelihood of injury due to a physical condition, the website says. 

To request a ballot by mail based on a disability, an eligible voter can check the box for disability on the request form and submit to the Bexar County Elections Department which will then provide a ballot by mail. If you would like an application to request a ballot by mail, you can visit the Early Voting & Absentee Ballots page.

Texas voters will weigh on the race for president, along with other national, state, and local races.

The Democratic and Republican sample ballots have also been made available.
