“Our hearts are with everyone affected by the storm.  Although our office was also impacted, we have worked tirelessly around the clock to ensure that the May 28 Primary Runoff Elections proceed as planned,” said Clerk Hudspeth, the county’s chief election official.  “Our office is committed to conducting well-organized, transparent, and fair elections.  Under the current circumstances, the safety of voters and election workers remains our top priority.”

The following locations will not open for early voting:

  • BakerRipley Middle School - 4414 Navigation Boulevard, Houston, TX 77011
  • Hardy Street Senior Citizens Center - 11901 West Hardy Road, Houston, TX 77076
  • Richard and Meg Weekley Community Center - 8440 Greenhouse Road, Cypress, TX 77433
  • North Channel Branch Library - 15741 Wallisville Road, Houston, TX 77049
  • Lone Star College Victory Center - 4141 Victory Drive, Houston, TX 77088
  • First Congregational Church - 10840 Beinhorn Road, Houston, TX 77024

“I want to remind everyone that there are only five days of early voting for this election. The most important thing to remember is that voters must vote in the same party’s runoff election that they voted in during the March 5 Primaries,” added Clerk Hudspeth.  “If a voter cast their ballot in the Republican Primary on March 5, then they can only participate in the Republican Runoff Election.  The same is true for Democratic primary voters.”

The address where a voter is registered and which party’s primary they chose to vote in determines what contests will be on the ballot.  Voters can view and print their personalized sample ballot to take to the polls on the Harris Votes website.
