BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas (KBTX) - The March Primary election has passed, but the Primary run-off election is now here. Texas is one of 10 states that hold primary election run-offs, according to Ballotpedia. A run-off election is a second election held to determine a winner when no candidate in the first election met the required threshold for victory, in Texas that means 50% of the vote.

If a voter participated in the Primary election, they have to vote on same party ballot for the run-off. To see a sample ballot for both parties, click here.
