Early Voting for the Texas House District 145 special election runoff begins Monday, February 25, and continues through March 1.

The seat, held previously by State Representative Carol Alvarado (D-Houston), became vacant after Alvarado won the special election for Senate District 6 in December.

During early voting, voters can visit any polling location from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Election Day is Tuesday, March 5, 2019.

On the ballot are two Democrats — small businesswoman Christina Morales and former Houston City Council Member and former State Rep. Melissa Noriega. The two topped six other candidates during the first round of the special election, held January 29.
