Early voting for the Democratic and Republican Party primaries ends Friday.
As of Thursday evening, more than 2,000 Victoria voters delivered their ballots in person.
Early voting opens at 7 a.m. at the Victoria County Elections Office, 111 N. Glass St., as well as the Victoria County Health Department, Classroom A, 2805 N. Navarro St. Voting closes at both locations at 7 p.m.
All registered voters in Victoria are open to these elections.
The ballot features the race for U.S. president, U.S. senator, congressional districts, state senators and representatives, all the State Board of Education, two railroad commissioners, statewide and district court races, and many county races. Voters determine the Democratic and Republican parties nominees for the November general election from this primary election. Voters cannot vote in both primaries.
A runoff election is set for July 31. Eligible voters can still register to vote for the runoff if they were not registered for the primary. You do not need to vote in the primary to vote in the runoff.
If you missed early voting, the final chance to choose nominees in the Republican and Democratic party primaries is Tuesday.
Election Day polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the county's 35 polling locations. You may only vote at your precinct polling location on Election Day.
