April 19, 2022
Contact: Sam Taylor
512-463-6116

AUSTIN — Texas Secretary of State John Scott today reminded Texas voters of upcoming deadlines and key dates for the upcoming Constitutional Amendment and Local Elections on May 7th, as well as the Primary Runoff Elections on May 24th. With the May 2022 elections occurring in close proximity to one another, several dates and deadlines overlap due to statutory deadlines set by the Texas Election Code.

Below are several key dates and reminders for Texas voters who wish to participate in either election:

May 7th - Statewide Constitutional Amendment Propositions and Local Elections

May 24th - Primary Runoff Elections

"With multiple opportunities to vote in the upcoming May elections, I strongly encourage all Texas voters to get informed about what's on the ballot and make a plan to cast one," Secretary Scott said.

"If you're new to Texas or haven't voted in an election yet this year, the upcoming elections are a perfect opportunity to familiarize yourself with the voting process and make your voice heard at the local, statewide and national levels on a variety of propositions and candidates. Don't wait until the last minute - visit VoteTexas.gov today to make sure you are registered and ready to cast your ballot!"

May 7 Constitutional Amendment and Local Elections

On May 7th, every Texas voter will have the opportunity to vote on two proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution relating to property taxes.

Read the ballot language and explanatory statements for statewide Propositions 1 and 2 in English (PDF) and Spanish (PDF).

Additionally, many local entities such as municipalities, school districts, utility districts, water districts and other political subdivisions will be holding elections on May 7th.

To check which local entities in your county are holding elections on May 7, contact your county election office.

To check your registration status and view Early Voting and Election Day polling locations, log in to the Texas Secretary of State's My Voter Portal.

May 24 Primary Runoff Elections

On May 24th, the Democratic and Republican parties will hold runoff elections for races in which no single candidate earned more than 50% of the vote in the March 1 Primary Elections. The winner of each party's primary runoff election will appear as that party's nominee on the November 8th General Election ballot.

Under Texas law, if you cast a ballot in a party's primary election, you can only participate in that same party's primary runoff election. In other words, voters cannot switch parties after the main primary election to vote in another party's primary runoff election. If you did not cast a ballot in either party's primary election, you have the option of voting in either party's primary runoff election.

You can view a full list of candidates who will appear on each party's primary runoff ballot on the Texas Secretary of State's candidate information portal here.

Early voting for the May 24th Primary Runoff Elections begins Monday, May 16th and ends Friday, May 20th. The deadline to apply for a ballot by mail in the May 24th Primary Runoff Elections is Friday, May 13th.

Reminder for Texans Voting by Mail

If you are eligible to vote by mail in Texas, you must request a mail ballot from your county's Early Voting clerk by completing and submitting an Application for Ballot by Mail (ABBM).
