Date Posted: 8/05/2014 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
Do you live in Senate District 4? If so, today is your last chance to decide who will represent you in the Texas Senate when the Legislature meets in January. The special election to fill the unexpired term of former Sen. Tommy Williams (R–The Woodlands) is taking place today, Aug. 5. Current State Representatives Brandon Creighton (R–Conroe) and Steve Toth (R–The Woodlands) are vying to move up to the Senate in this special election (which follows Williams' resignation). The representatives were among a field of four candidates who originally filed for the open seat, but neither Creighton nor Toth earned enough votes to avoid a runoff. Most polls will be open until 7 pm tonight. Check your local news for polling locations as some precincts have been consolidated for today's special election. Senate District 4 covers all of Liberty and Orange Counties, plus parts of Chambers, Harris, Jefferson and Montgomery Counties. If you live in this part of the state, don't miss your chance to influence the outcome of this important election. View profiles of the candidates in today's race, and then vote your profession!
