2024 texas primary elections

Every RGV Polling Place For Today’s Primary Election – Voting FAQs


First time voting? Don’t know what the hell everyone’s voting for today? No problem. Your friends at The Bench Wire got you covered.

Ok, what’s happening today? Is today election day?

First off, today is not election day, but the day of the 2024 Texas Primary Election, where both major parties will decide which candidates will represent the party in November’s general election.

Think of it as the playoffs. Candidates from both conferences (Democrat and Republican) need to duke it out amongst each other before they send their representative to the Super Bowl (the general election in November).

Primary – Happening Today = Democrats vs Democrats and Republicans vs Republicans

General Election – November = Democrats vs Republicans

It’s often dubbed “election day” in the Valley because many local candidates, typically Democrats, often run un-opposed during the general election since there’s often no one else running for the same seat on the Republican side because Democrats have had a historic stronghold in many local elections that they often win handedly against a Republican opponent, although, Republicans have made significant inroads within Valley voters to where these races have become a lot more competitive.

What offices are on the ballot for Democrats and Republicans?

Everything from local judges, to Congressman, to Senator, to the President. For example, on the Democrat side for President, you have President Joe Biden going up against God knows who, and on the Republican side for President, you have former President Donald Trump going up against everyone else who has given up and kissed the ring.

Can I pick and choose which candidates I want to give my vote for on the Democrat AND the Republican side?

No, you cannot vote for candidates from both the Democratic and Republican parties in a primary election. When participating in a primary, you must select a party ballot — either Democrat or Republican. If you choose the Democratic ballot, you can only vote for Democratic candidates in their respective races. Similarly, selecting the Republican ballot allows you to vote exclusively for Republican candidates in their contests.

In the general election (in November), you can vote for anyone on the ballot, whether they are Democrat, Republican, or another party.

What if I’m not registered to vote?

You cannot vote in today’s primary election.

You still have time to register to vote in November’s general election. To register to vote, you can go to your nearest library or Texas DPS (Drivers license) office. For more information on how you can register to vote, go to https://www.votetexas.gov/

What time do the polls close today?

At 7:00 PM. If you can’t make it due to work, request time off from work to go vote today. By Texas law, if employers must grant employees paid time off if they don’t have two consecutive hours outside of working hours to do so on Election Day or during early voting.
