Where can I find more information about the upcoming Primary Elections?
This is the date on which the major political parties will hold their Primary Elections. Candidates who wish to represent one of the major parties in races that will appear on the November ballot must first win that party's Primary Election.
Lists of the candidates whose names will appear on the Dallas County ballots are available on the website of the Texas Secretary of State. Use the drop-down menu to view all candidates in your county.
Other useful sources of information are the websites of the local political parties:

The Dallas Morning News has produced an online Voter Guide, in which candidates answer questions from the Editorial Board. We provide a link to this Voter Guide because it is a good source of information, presented in the candidates' own words. The League of Women Voters is not affiliated in any way with the Dallas Morning News, and we do not EVER endorse any candidate for office.
