URGENT Primary Election Update
This afternoon, the San Antonio three-judge federal panel issued an order (click here to read the order in PDF format) setting a May 29th Primary Election and a related administrative calendar for the election.
Of particular importance – the order sets a re-opened filing period for the primary ballot, which will commence on Friday morning, March 2nd at 9:00am and runs through Friday, March 9th at 6:00pm.
The Republican Party of Texas will be accepting filing applications at our Austin headquarters at 1108 Lavaca, Suite 500, Austin, TX 78701, for all candidates who are required to file with the State Party instead of their county chairman.
RPT will begin accepting applications on Friday morning, March 2nd, at 9:00am and will continue until 5:00pm. The RPT office will be closed on Saturday and Sunday and we will resume taking filings on Monday morning, March 5th, at 9:00am. From Monday through Friday, applications will be accepted from the hours of 9:00am to 5:00pm, and then on Friday, March 9th, we will continue accepting applications until 6:00pm.
Candidates who filed during the prior filing period in late 2011 who still wish to seek the same office need not re-file their applications, assuming no information contained therein has subsequently been rendered inaccurate.
