The races are on for the upcoming Republican and Democratic primaries on March 3, 2020.
While the top of the ticket — president and vice president — gets the spotlight, there are a number of races from U.S. Senate to county constable in the mix.
One of the big changes this year is the race for U.S. representative for Texas District 11, which includes Llano County. Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Midland) announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election. His announcement paved the way for a field of 11 candidates vying for the GOP nomination.
On the Democratic side, the race for the party’s U.S. Senate nomination is filled to the brim as well with candidates. A dozen people have filed to take on the winner of the Texas GOP Senate race. In that race, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) finds himself fending off four challengers.
The last day to register to vote is February 3, 2020. Early voting is February 18-28, 2020.
Below is a list of candidates that have filed, according to the Texas Secretary of State website. Some of the candidates and races appear in both the Llano and Burnet county lists because those offices serve both counties, such as the district attorney and district judge.
