About Primaries in Texas

Primary elections are elections to determine who each political party’s nominees will be for the general election in November, 2014. The winning nominee from each party will face each other in November, Voting in a party primary affiliates the voter with that party for the full two-year cycle. Although voters in Texas do not register in parties, voters cannot vote in another party’s primary or sign a nomination petition for a candidate who is a member of another party or running as an independent. You may switch parties any time you like, but you may not vote in another party’s primary runoff once you have voted in your original party’s primary for that year. Voting in a primary election does not obligate you to vote for the same candidate in the general election. For this reason, voters in Texas often will cross over and vote in another party’s primary in order to affect the outcome. In our area, most elections are decided in the Republican primaries, so many Democrats will choose to vote in the Republican primary in order to choose the better candidate. In 2008, Republicans crossed over to the Democratic primary, since Texas had a huge say in the Democratic presidential race. The Libertarian party chooses candidates by convention, and independent candidates pay a filing fee and must collect signatures in order to get on the ballot.

We all need to reach a consensus regarding the challengers to Cornyn- I was at first looking favorably at Stockman, mainly because he is a sitting US Representative, but I later became aware that Stockman falsely claimed support from Louie Gohmert, a Rep that I highly respect. It seems that Stockman has removed that claim from his site now, (at least I can’t find it), but the result is that I now am for Dwayne Stoval. We all need to support the best candidate.
