State Legislative Election Results

Texas House of Representatives2014 Texas State Senate Elections
Elections for all 150 seats in the Texas House of Representatives took place in 2014. A primary election took place on March 4, 2014. Those candidates who did not receive 50% or more of the vote in their party primary on March 4 faced an additional May 27 primary runoff. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was December 9, 2013.

Elections to 15 of the 31 seats in the Texas State Senate, the upper chamber of the Texas State Legislature, also took place in 2014. Seven statewide elected positions in the state government, including the office of Governor of Texas, were also at stake.

Both chambers of the Texas State Legislature were dominated by Republicans heading into November 2014.

Following the general election, there was no change to the majority control of the Texas House of Representatives. The Republican majority increased from 94 to 97 seats total. The Democratic Party suffered a net loss of three seats, dropping from 55 to 52 seats. The Republican Party originally increased its seats held to 98, however, State Rep. Michael Villarreal informed Governor Rick Perry on November 6, 2014, that he would not be accepting his re-election so that he could run for Mayor of San Antonio. A special election will be necessary to fill his seat.[1]

Retiring incumbents

Twelve Texas state house incumbents, including eleven Republicans, chose not to run for re-election in 2014. They were:

Heading into the November 4 election, the Republican Party held a commanding majority in the Texas House of Representatives. The Republican Party has been the dominant party in the Texas State House since the November 2002 elections, when they ended a Democratic Party majority that had been uninterrupted for the previous nine decades.

Note: On November 6, 2014, Villarreal informed Governor Rick Perry that he would be not accepting the seat in the Texas House of Representatives, and would be resigning his seat effective the end of his term, January 15, 2015. A special election will be necessary to fill Villarreal's seat, which could take place as early as December, 2014.[1][2]

Qualifications

To be eligible to serve in the Texas House of Representatives, a candidate must be:[3]

  • A U.S. citizen
  • 21 years old before the general election
  • A two-year resident of Texas before the general election
  • A district resident for 1 year prior to the general election

Redistricting lawsuit

The Texas State Legislature was sued for unconstitutional redistricting of the state house districts following the 2010 census.[4] The U.S. Department of Justice argued on July 14, 2014, that the redistricting of the state's legislative districts "discriminated against Hispanic voters and tried to protect Republican incumbents."[5] In 2013, Texas was one of fifteen states with a history of voting discrimination that was deemed by the high court as no longer needing approval from Washington under the Voting Rights Act to change election laws.[6][7] The Justice Department argued that Texas should still be required to obtain federal approval. Attorney for the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, Bryan Sells, said that Texas has "adopted maps that discriminated against its citizens" since 1970.[7] Patrick Sweeten, an Assistant Texas Attorney General, said, "No one in the Texas Legislature discriminated on the basis of race."[7] If the Texas Legislature is proven to be guilty of discrimination, it could have to be approved for election or voting law changes by the U.S. Attorney General or federal judges.[5] A map of the State House districts for the 83rd Legislature can be found on the Texas Legislative Council website (timed out). This lawsuit had no effect on the 2014 legislative elections.
