Introductory Note Concerning Conventions of Parties Holding Primary Elections

Precinct Conventions

Time and Place:  Precinct conventions may be held at a time and place determined by rules adopted by state executive committee of a political party.  If precinct conventions are held on general primary election day, the hour set for convening conventions may not be earlier than 7:00 p.m. or later than 9:00 p.m., but a convention may not convene until the last voter has voted at the precinct polling place.  If precinct conventions are held on a day other than general primary election day, county executive committee must set the hour for convening or a time frame in which the convention must convene.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. §§ 174.021 & 174.022, as amended by House Bill 3102, 2013 Legislative Session.

Notice Required:  County chair must post notice of date, hour, and place for convening precinct convention on county or state party’s Internet website or other Internet location easily found through a search engine.  If county party does not maintain an Internet website, chair shall post notice on the county commissioners court bulletin board.  Notice must remain posted continuously for the 10 days immediately preceding the date of convention.  Because convention times are not yet determined, this calendar does not show any deadlines for posting such notices.  Not later than the 10th day before the date of precinct conventions, county chair must deliver to county election officer written notice, either on paper or in electronic form, of date, hour, and place for convening each precinct convention.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 174.023(a), (b), as amended by House Bill 3102, 2013 Legislative Session.

County and Senatorial Conventions

Time and Place:  State executive committee by rule must specify date county and senatorial conventions will be held.  Political party may by rule allow a county to hold precinct conventions before county convention on same day and at same place as county convention.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. §§ 172.021 & 174.063(a), as amended by House Bill 3102, 2013 Legislative Session.

Notice Required:  Notice of hour and date for convening county convention must be posted electronically on county or state party’s Internet website or on the bulletin board used for posting notice of meetings of the commissioners court.  Notice must remain posted continuously for the 10 days immediately preceding the date of convention.  Because convention times are not yet determined, this calendar does not show any deadlines for posting such notices.  Not later than the 10th day before the date of county and senatorial convention, county chair must deliver to county election officer written notice, either on paper or in electronic form, of date, hour, and place for convening county and senatorial convention.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. §174.064(a), (b), as amended by House Bill 3102, 2013 Legislative Session.

State Conventions

Biennial state convention must be convened on a date selected by state executive committee.  State convention date is no longer limited to one in June or July.  State executive committee must set date of state convention not later than date state chair delivers to county chairs certification of names for placement on the primary election ballot.  See entry at December 13, 2013.  Accordingly, this calendar does not show any deadline or time frame for holding state convention.  Notice of date, hour, and place for convening state convention must be posted by state chair on party’s Internet website before date of party’s precinct conventions.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. §§ 174.092 & 174.093, as amended by House Bill 3102, 2013 Legislative Session.

9th Last day Democratic or Republican Party candidate may file an application for a place on the primary ballot (6 p.m.).  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 172.023(a).

NOTE: This deadline is also applicable to applications for a place on the primary election ballot to fill a vacancy for an unexpired term in an office of the state or county government that occurred on or before the 10th day before the date of the regular filing deadline.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 202.004(b).  See entry at December 16, 2013 for precinct and county chair write–in deadline and for Extended Deadlines.

Last day county chairs may accept applications for a place on the ballot for office of county or precinct chair (6 p.m.).  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 172.023(a).

Last day minor party candidates may file applications to be nominated by convention (5 p.m.). Tex. Elec.

Elec. Code Ann. § 181.033(b).
10th If a candidate withdraws, dies or is declared ineligible by this date, the name is omitted from the primary ballot.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. §§ 172.057(a) & 172.058(a), as amended by Senate Bills 904 and 910, 2013 Legislative Session.

NOTE: The new withdrawal deadline set forth in Section 172.057(a) of the Texas Election Code (1st day after the regular filing deadline) conflicts with the deadline set forth in Section 172.052 of the Texas Election Code (79th day before the general primary election day), which was not amended in 2013 to be consistent with the new law.  We view the new law as prevailing.

Recommended deadline for state chair to certify to Secretary of State for placement on the general primary election ballot the name of each candidate who files with chair an application that complies with Section 172.021(b) of the Texas Election Code on or before December 9, 2013.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 172.028(a), as amended by House Bill 3103, 2013 Legislative Session.

NOTE: The Texas Election Code does not provide a deadline for state chairs to make their certification.  However, because a new law enacted by the 2013 Legislature requires state chairs to notify county chairs no later than the 81st day before the primary election date that the list of district and statewide candidates for the primary has been posted on Secretary of State’s website, it is reasonable to request state chairs to make the certification no later than December 10, 2013 so that the information can be posted to Secretary of State’s website on or before December 13, 2013, the 81st day before the primary election date.  See entry at December 17, 2013 for certification of candidates who file with state chair an application that complies with Section 172.021(b) of the Texas Election Code on or before the Extended Deadline of December 16, 2013.

13th Date by which Secretary of State anticipates posting on Secretary of State’s Internet website that is viewable by the public certified list of candidates who filed on or before December 9, 2013 provided by state chairs.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 172.028(a), as amended by House Bill 3103, 2013 Legislative Session.

Deadline for state chair to notify county chair in each county in which the candidate’s name is to appear on the ballot that certification of candidates who filed on or before December 9, 2013 has been posted by Secretary of State.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 172.028(b), as amended by House Bill 3103, 2013 Legislative Session.  See entry at December 17, 2013 for supplemental notification of certification of candidates who filed with state chair on or before the Extended Deadline of December 16, 2013.

Deadline for state executive committee to set date, hour, and place for convening state convention.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. §§ 174.092 & 174.093, as amended by House Bill 3102, 2013 Legislative Session. 

NOTE: Section 174.092(b) of the Texas Election Code provides that state executive committee must set date, hour, and place for convening state convention not later than the date state chair delivers to county chairs certification of names for placement on the general primary ballot.  However, Section 172.028(a) of the Texas Election Code was amended by House Bill 3103, 2013 Legislative Session, to provide that state chair no longer certifies names of the district and statewide candidates for the primary ballot to county chairs.  Instead, state chair certifies candidate names to Secretary of State and Secretary of State posts candidate names on his website.  Section 172.028(b) of the Texas Election Code was amended by House Bill 3103, 2013 Legislative Session, to provide that state chair must notify county chair in each county not later than the 81st day before primary election day that certification has been posted by Secretary of State.  Accordingly, the calendar continues to show the 81st day before primary election day as the deadline for state executive committee to set the date, hour, and place for convening the state convention.

16th Last day candidates may file a declaration of write-in candidacy for county or precinct chair (6 p.m.).  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 171.0231(d).  (This deadline is extended by Tex. Elec.

Elec. Code Ann. § 202.004(a), (c), as amended by Senate Bill 904, 2013 Legislative Session.  (This deadline is extended by Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 1.006 from the 5th day after the date of the regular filing deadline for the general primary election, which falls on Saturday, December 14.)

Extended Deadline (6 p.m.) for state or county chair to receive an application for a place on the general primary election ballot for an office if a candidate who has made an application that complies with the applicable requirements:

Elec. Code Ann. § 172.054(b), as amended by Senate Bills 904 and 910, 2013 Legislative Session.

(This deadline is extended by Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 1.006 from the 5th day after the date of the regular filing deadline for the general primary election, which falls on Saturday, December 14.)

NOTE: An application filed by mail with state chair under this Extended Deadline provision is not timely if received later than 5:00 p.m. on the Extended Deadline.

Deadline for chair to post notice on the commissioners court bulletin board 24 hours preceding date, hour, and place of ballot drawing if ballot drawing is conducted on December 17, 2013.  If party maintains an Internet website, party must post notice on party’s website.  All candidates who provide an email address on their filing form must be notified electronically of drawing.  Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 172.082 (e), as amended by House Bill 3103, 2013 Legislative Session.

Elec. Code Ann. §§ 172.28(a), 172.029, as amended by House Bill 3103, 2013 Legislative Session.

NOTE: The purpose of this recommendation is to ensure that candidates whose applications are filed in accordance with the Extended Deadlines under Section 202.004(a), (c) of the Texas Election Code, as amended by Senate Bill 904, 2013 Legislative Session, and Section 172.054(b) of the Texas Election Code, as amended by Senate Bills 904 and 910, 2013 Legislative Session, are added to the list of certified candidates previously submitted by state chair to Secretary of State.  See entries at December 10, 2013 and December 18, 2013.
