Cameron County: Texas leads states into Super Tuesday primaries

Election 2016

This is it. Residents all across Texas will have their chance today to help determine who the Democratic and Republican nominees are in the presidential race.

In Cameron County, citizens will decide on the nominees for next county judge, county court-at-law No. 4 and No. 5 judges, district attorney and sheriff, among several other races.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today.

The winners in all races will advance to the Nov. 8 General Election.

“Both parties have turned out significantly higher than usual (in the early voting polls). Democrats had an above average showing, but it wasn’t up to their highest in 2008. And the Republicans were about 2,000 above their highest, so they almost doubled,” said Remi Garza, Cameron County elections administrator.
