Texas 2022 election: Your primary sample ballot – Texas Tribune

Texas will hold its 2022 primary elections March 1. Here are all of the candidates who have filed for the Democratic and Republican primary elections, according to the Secretary of State. Each party will choose its candidate for seven statewide seats — governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, land commissioner, agriculture commissioner, comptroller and one of three seats on the Railroad Commission. Republicans and Democrats will also choose their candidates to face off in November for district-based congressional and legislative offices, the State Board of Education and judicial seats.

Texas has redrawn its political districts. Our map page shows which districts your home is within.

Early voting begins Feb. 14. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the primary, the top two vote-getters will compete in a runoff May 24. Texas is an open-primary state, so voters can decide every two years whether to pick Republican or Democratic nominees (or hold out and go to third-party conventions).

Of note: Whatever primary you decide to vote in, you can vote only in that same party’s runoff. You can vote for either party’s candidate in the general election.

You’ll also see county and local elections on your ballot. Sample ballots for specific counties can be found through the list of county websites maintained by the Texas Secretary of State’s office.

Governor

The governor is the chief executive of Texas. The seat has not been held by a Democrat since 1995, and Republican Greg Abbott is seeking a third term. His primary challengers include former state Sen. Don Huffines and former Texas GOP chairman Allen West. On the Democratic ticket, former El Paso congressman Beto O’Rourke has statewide name recognition after his 2018 U.S. Senate and 2020 presidential runs.

Texas Senate

Every seat in the 31-member Texas Senate is up for election this year because the districts were redrawn by current legislators. Sixteen Republican incumbents were drawn into safe districts for reelection, and two additional Senate seats being vacated by Republicans would almost certainly go to new GOP candidates over Democrats next year based on the percentage of voters in the district who voted for Donald Trump over Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential race. Senators serve four-year terms.

Texas House

There are 150 members of the Texas state House. Each state representative serves a two-year term. The election takes place under a new map drawn by current legislators which creates 85 districts that would have favored Trump in 2020 and 65 that would have voted for Biden. The current partisan breakdown of the House is 83 Republicans and 67 Democrats, though Trump won only 76 of the current districts in 2020.
