Harris County residents can cast ballots at any vote center during early voting June 29-July 10, and election day is July 14.
Election day was previously scheduled for late May but was postponed by Gov. Greg Abbott because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Texas secretary of state issued recommended health care protocols for voters, election officers and poll workers in late May to promote safety during the voting process.
The last day to register to vote for the primary election runoff was June 15. Those interested in applying for an absentee ballot must file an application by July 2.
Who is on the ballot
A total of 14 runoffs will appear on Harris County ballots for Democratic candidates, including races at the state, local and congressional levels. A total of five races will appear on Republican ballots, including two congressional races and three local races.
Each voter's ballot will vary based on their address to ensure voters are only casting ballots in races for candidates who will represent them. Full sample ballots for Republicans and Democrats can be found on the Harris County clerk's website.

Where to vote
Harris County Clerk Christopher Hollins has encouraged voters to take advantage of early voting opportunities to allow for more social distancing at polling places on election day. The county has increased the total number of polling places throughout the duration of the election, Hollins said.
The clerk's office is also encouraging voters who qualify to do so to vote by mail. All mail ballot applications must be received by July 2. More information on how to apply can be found here.
Harris County voters can vote at any polling center on election day as opposed to having to vote at a specific precinct. A full list of voting locations can be found here.
