Primary election day is Tuesday

Voters will head to the polls Tuesday to cast their ballots in the Texas primary election.

The primaries determine candidates for state, county, and national offices in this November’s election.

“Denton County Republicans turned out in record numbers for early voting in the primary, beating the 2010 turnout by over 1,500 voters,” said Richard Steenson, who serves as First Vice Chairman, Political Affairs with the Denton County Republican Party.

At the top of the list for most Texas voters will be the race for the open U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. Also on the ballot are multiple seats, including the presidential primary, as well as county positions like sheriff, tax assessor/collector, district court judges and constables. Republicans will cast a vote on the proposition to repeal the nation’s new healthcare law. Click here for a sample Republican ballot and here for a sample Democratic ballot.
