The Republican Primary In Texas
On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, after the statute-specified period of early voting and absentee voting, the primary elections of the Republican Party will take place throughout Texas.
A primary election is an election in which registered voters in their county of residence will select candidates that they believe should represent the Republican Party for certain elected office to run in the general election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
In the primary elections in Texas, registered voters will select candidates for certain Federal offices, State offices and County offices. The primary elections are also used to select party convention delegates and party leaders. Candidates for these offices have to meet the requirements of the office and file by the deadline in December 2021 in order to appear on the ballot.
The State of Texas employs an open primary system. In this system, voters do not have to register with a party in advance to participate in that party's primary. The voter must sign a pledge stating the following (the language below is taken directly from state statutes):
“The following pledge shall be placed on the primary election ballot above the listing of candidates' names: 'I am a Republican and understand that I am ineligible to vote or participate in another political party's primary election or convention during this voting year.”
