  • Texas Primary Is the red state turnin blue

"There's no way to look at this as positive for Republicans - it's either inconsequential, or it's bad", Mackowiak said. "It is imperative that all Texans wishing to cast a vote start early and undertake the necessary preparations to be able to vote". The primary runoff elections will be held on Tuesday, May 22, 2018. "Republicans are concerned in midterm elections, as a majority party that they are going to lose something".

"For Republicans, if this is evidence of a significant enthusiasm gap, then that would be something to worry about", Mackowiak said.

McLennan County saw a total of 3,054 democratic voters and 7,778 Republican voters this year. Just over 15,000 Democrats voted early this primary season compared to only about 4,000 in 2014.

More: Where do I vote on March 6? "We never could have imagined how much Mr. Trump, himself, would ignite such an energetic movement of resistance", said Democratic Party Chair Carol Donovan.

Already, Democrats have been performing far better than expected in state legislative elections since Trump became president.

That might account for some shifting in party allegiances, Cook said.

The Houston Chronicle noted that in Harris County, the most populous county and where Houston is located, "Democrats outpaced the GOP by more than 2,000 voters".

This would mean Holika would survive because of her enchanted shawl which protected her from fire - but the plan failed. Youths form a human pyramid to reach to a clay pot during a Holi celebration in Tamghas, Gulmi, on Thursday.

The main target for Crowe and the other progressive in the primary, nonprofit CEO Elliott McFadden, is David Kopser, an Austin-based tech entrepreneur and Iraq War veteran who is following the traditional strategy for Democrats in conservative districts by running a campaign centered on being willing to reach compromises with Republicans and that won't trigger a Republican backlash at the polls. His plans to crack down on immigrants have spurred political activism among Latinos, who make up about 40 percent of the state's population and tend to support Democrats.

Texas' primary on Tuesday follows a relatively busy early-voting period. Texas is the largest red state in the nation.

"While I don't think that Texas is going to turn blue this cycle, I do think with these turnout numbers, it could have a significant impact in some races, and some leaning Republican races in November", Ryan said.

Also accepted are a U.S. Military Identification Card, a U.S. Citizenship Certificate, and a valid U.S. passport.

Competitive elections can both stem from and generate the entry of higher-quality candidates. Numerous open seats feature so many candidates from both parties that most primary races won't have anyone winning a majority of Tuesday's votes, ensuring a second round of voting May 22.
