Early voting Feb. 14-25 for 2022 Primary


Last updated 2/14/2022 at 3:40pm

Early voting begins at 8 a.m. Monday, Feb. 14 for the 2022 Primary election that will determine who's on the Nov. 8 midterm election.

Early voting runs from Feb. 14-25 with varying hours (see below) and no voting on Feb. 21, President's Day.

Voters may vote in either the Republican or Democrat Party primary, but only one. They may vote in any of the county's four early voting locations, but those waiting to vote until March 1, must do so at the voting location that matches the Precinct number on their voter registration card.

The ballot in Orange County is topped by the race for the District 14 House of Representatives seat held currently by Randy Weber, R-Friendswood.

After the winners are sworn in next January, U.S. Rep. Brian Babin will no longer represent Orange County. That’s because of the 2021 redrawing of district lines which are adjusted every 10 years, after the U.S. Census.

Because of a slow rate of growth in East Texas relative to the state average, Weber’s District 14, which previously ran from Brazoria County to the Neches River, now extends to cover Orange County.

The state portion of the ballot includes Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller of Public Accounts, Commissioner of the General Land Office, Commissioner of Agriculture, Railroad Commissioner, three seats on the State Supreme Court, three seats on the Court of Criminal Appeals, one seat on the 9th Court of Appeals, and 260th State District Court, District 7 State Board of Education, District 3 State Senate and District 21 State House of Representatives.

Orange County offices on the Republican primary ballot are County Judge, Judge of County Court at Law, District Clerk, County Clerk, County Treasurer, Precinct 2 Commissioner, Precinct 4 Commissioner and Justices of the Peace for Precinct 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Only two Orange County races drew as many as two candidates and the Democratic Party put forth no names for the offices.
