Primary: Texas has an open primary system, in which any registered voter can choose which party's primary to vote in, without having to be a member of that party. Texas also scheduled a primary runoff for July 31, 2012.

Voter registration: Voters had to register to vote in the primary by April 30.[1] For the runoff election on July 31, 2012, the vote registration deadline was July 2. For the general election, the voter registration deadline was October 9.[2]

See also: Texas elections, 2012


  • Redistricting note: Due to legal turmoil in the redistricting process, filing deadlines were changed twice and the primary was changed once. The original filing deadline was December 12th.[3] That deadline was first moved to December 15th and then December 19th by a federal court due to delays caused by redistricting legal challenges. When a final map was issued, the December 19th deadline was once again moved to March 9 to allow candidates more time to file in light of the delays and map ambiguities. The primary date was first moved from March 6 to April 3, 2012, before finally settling on May 29.[4]

According to the New York Times race ratings in October 2012, one of the 36 districts was considered to be in play, District 23.[5]

The Center for Voting and Democracy (Fairvote) projected that Democrats would win 10 districts while Republicans would win 24 seats. It did not make a projection for the remaining two districts.[6]

Primary competitiveness
