Here is a guide to who's on the ballot, where to vote and more information on participating in the Texas 2020 Primary Election.
Texas runs open primaries, meaning voters do not have to be registered party members to participate. However, a voter can participate in either the Republican or the Democratic primary, but not both.
Election Day polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, a runoff election is scheduled for May 26.
