Editor's note: Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Texas primary runoff election was postponed until July. We have updated the most important dates you need to know.

2020 is going to be a busy election year. So we have compiled the most important dates in one place — you'll never have to worry about missing a headline. We've updated our calendar with the new runoff dates.

You can add these dates to your Google Calendar or iCal. Or view them listed in order below.

  • Feb. 3: This is your last day to register to vote and be eligible to cast a ballot in the March primaries. Check out this page for more information about voter registration in Texas.
  • Feb. 18: Early voting starts in the Texas primaries. It will continue for the next 10 days. You can check your county's website for information about polling locations.
  • Feb. 21: This is your last day to request a ballot to vote by mail in the primaries. In order to vote by mail, you'll have to meet certain conditions. Learn more here.
  • Feb. 28: Early voting ends.
  • March 3: If you didn't vote early, you get your chance on election day. Make sure to show up at your local precinct, unless your county is participating in countywide voting. Again, you can find this out by checking your county's website.
  • June 15: This is the last day to register to vote and be eligible to cast a ballot in the primary runoffs. Runoffs happen whenever a single candidate doesn't cross the 50% threshold in the March primary. Several races are in a runoff.

  • July 14: This is primary runoff election day, your last chance to have a say in whom the Republicans or Democrats nominate in any races that went to a runoff.
