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.[3][4]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Henry Cuellar (D), who was first elected in 2004.

Texas' 28th Congressional District is located in the southern portion of the state and includes Bexar, Wilson, Atascosa, McMullen, Webb, Zapata, Starr and Hildago counties.[5]
