Early voting starts Monday for runoffs that are on both the Republican and Democratic tickets.

Election Day is Tuesday, May 27.

Early voting will be from 8 to 5 Monday through Friday next week at Annex I, 1410 W. Pearl St.

There is one local race, and it is on the Republican ballot.

Kathy Gwinn and Darell Grober are vying for the Precinct 3 justice of the peace seat being vacated by the retiring Judy Watson.

Races on the Republican ballot are:

Lieutenant Governor (Dan Patrick vs. David Dewhurst); Attorney General (Dan Branch vs. Ken Paxton); Commissioner of Agriculture (Sid Miller vs. Tommy Merritt); and Railroad Commissioner (Wayne Christian vs. Ryan Sitton).

A race for U.S. senator is on the Democratic ballot. That competition pits David M. Alameel against Kesha Rogers.

There is also a Commissioner of Agriculture race pitting Jim Hogan against Richard “Kinky” Friedman.

Those who voted in the primary must vote the same party in the runoff.
