Primary: Texas is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party. At the primary, they may choose which party primary ballot to vote on, but in order to vote they must sign a pledge declaring they will not vote in another party's primary or convention that year.[1][2]

Voter registration: Voters had to register to vote in the primary by February 2, 2014. For the general election, the voter registration deadline was October 5, 2014 (30 days prior to election).[3]

Battleground races

BattlegroundRace.jpg

Texas was home to one battleground district in 2014: Texas' 23rd Congressional District.

The district was a battleground due to the fact that it was held by a Democratic incumbent, Pete Gallego, but was a district that slightly favored Republicans. Cook's PVI rated the district as R+3, while Fairvote called the district a Toss Up.[4][5] The district was won by the Republican presidential candidate in the last two elections as well: John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012.[6] Additionally, Pete Gallego was a freshman incumbent who won election in 2012 by less than 5 percent.

Gallego was defeated by Will Hurd (R) in the general election on November 4, 2014.
