Election Day: What you need to know for the primary runoffs today

(Austonia)

Come later tonight, Texans will officially know who will be on the ballot for the November general election.

In Texas, candidates must win at least 50% of the vote to be elected. In the March primaries where the top candidate only received a plurality of votes, a runoff is being held. Voters will decide on the candidates to represent their party in the November general election. Just like the March primaries, voters will choose which party they'd like to vote in. Then based on location, each ballot will show which races are in a runoff.

Here's everything you need to know before heading to the polls.
