Editor’s note: Texas law says a voter who casts a ballot in a primary election can only vote in the same party’s runoff and cannot switch parties between the primary and the runoff. So a voter who voted in the Democratic Primary cannot vote during in runoff election in the Republican Party.

Does the Grayson County judge not represent the entire county both Republicans and Democrats? If so why do election laws prevent some in the county from voting in this runoff. Many people who aren’t Republicans would like to vote for who they want to represent them.


I believe the election laws should be changed when it comes to runoffs. The County is made up of many, many people and not all have the chance to vote except Republicans. To me that is prejudice at it’s highest level. Not all Democrats or independents vote along party lines.
