May 28 Is Election Day in the Primary Runoff Election

Voters who come out to the polls for the May 28 primary runoff election will make their voices heard.

According to unofficial tallies, just 3,586 Dallas County voters turned out in person or by mail for early voting in the Republican primary runoff, and 16,688 people cast their votes in the Democratic race. That’s out of 1,430,965 registered voters countywide.

Turnout at the University Park United Methodist Church polling location has been typical of lower-profile runoff elections, the location’s co-election judge for early voting Jeannee O’Neill said on May 23. 

O’Neill said at about 11:30 a.m. on May 23 that 39 residents had cast their votes so far that day.

A runoff is held when no single candidate in the primary election receives more than 50% of the vote. The winner of May’s primary runoff will appear on the ballot for their party in the November general election.

Here’s who voters in the Park Cities and Preston Hollow can expect to see on their ballots:

  • Democrats: Dallas County Sheriff incumbent Marian Brown faces former Sheriff Lupe Valdez.
  • Republicans: In the State Board of Education District 12 race, realtor Jamie Kohlmann takes on incumbent Pam Little.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on May 28, which is election day. Click HERE to access a list of polling locations.
