THE WOODLANDS, TX – Today is your last chance to early vote for the Texas Primary Elections. As long as you’re in line by 7:00 p.m. tonight at any of the authorized polling locations in your county of residence, you will be able to cast your ballot. Remember to bring a valid state-issued ID and leave any politically themed clothing at home.

Once early voting ends, your only other chance to vote in the Primaries is Tuesday, March 5. This time, you’ll have to go to your assigned precinct polling location. Again, valid ID is required to vote and election laws and restrictions must be observed. The Primary Elections will determine who will represent each party in the General Election in November; in the case of many local races that are unopposed, whoever wins the Primary will win the General.

Shenandoah City Council met on February 28 and addressed the issue of unopposed races. There are three positions up for election or reelection in Shenandoah: Mayor, Council Position 1, and Council Position 5. Of those, Mayor John Escoto and Councilman Position 1 Ron Raymaker have no challengers. Michael McLeod, currently the Position 5 Councilman, has opted to not run for reelection; the sole filer for the seat is Frank Robinson. As a result, City Council voted to cancel its upcoming May 4 elections.

To learn your polling locations for early voting or Election Day, or for a list of candidates and measures, go to if you are a Woodlands resident in Montgomery County or if you are a Woodlands resident in Harris County.
