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.
