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 Pete Sessions (R), who was first elected in 2002.

Texas' 32nd Congressional District is located in the central portion of the state and includes portions of Dallas, Collin and Tarrant counties.[5]
