Community groups across Houston are organizing candidate forums to help educate voters on the remaining candidates in Houston's runoff election.

Over 100 candidates ran for City Council and mayor in Houston's November general election. Now, any race in which no candidate received more than 50% of the vote will be decided via a runoff between the top two finishers.

Learn about the candidates in Houston's runoff elections at these upcoming forums. Each forum features a selection of candidates in district and at-large City Council races and the mayoral race.

Early voting begins Nov. 27 and Election Day is Dec. 14. This applies to all races except the District B Houston City Council race, which will be determined in a special election due to a lawsuit alleging runoff candidate Cynthia Bailey is not eligible to run.

Editor's note: This post will be updated periodically as additional forums are announced. If you are a forum organizer and would like your event included, contact hrmnews@communityimpact.com.
