The deadline to register to vote in Texas’ 2018 primary election is on Feb. 5.
Early voting will open Feb. 20, followed by the official day to vote in the primaries on March 6. Texas will be the first state to weigh in on the midterm election; the next state will be Illinois two weeks afterward on March 20.
Those who miss the Feb. 5 deadline will not be able to vote in the Texas primary election but will have until Oct. 9 to complete registration for the general election. The general election will be held on Nov. 6.
These elections will determine the official candidates for the 2018 midterm election that will span from legislators for Texas to U.S. senators.
U.S. citizens will be eligible to vote so long as they are 18 at the time of the election, are not currently incarcerated, on parole or on probation for a felony, and are registered in the county of their residency. Citizens must be registered in their county of residence.
