November or Bust: Texas’ Third Parties Host Conventions Tonight

Texas Votes

While the primaries are over, two of Texas’ largest third parties will now get their say about who appears on the November ballot.

The Libertarian Party of Texas and the Green Party of Texas will each host their precinct and county conventions this week to nominate local and county-level candidates for the general election. Pursuant state law, precinct conventions will be held tonight.

Both parties do not participate in the primary system, opting instead to host their own conventions without the assistance of tax dollars.

In Harris County, Libertarians will meet at either 7 and 8 p.m. at one of eight locations based on a voter’s precinct, while all Green Party voters will report to 2805 Wichita Street, Houston, TX 77004, at 7 p.m., according to the group’s Facebook page.

Libertarians elected to the county convention will appear at Four Points Sheraton, 10655 Katy Freeway, in Houston, at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

County convention delegates will then choose their party leadership in addition to candidates for county races, the legislature and U.S. Congress. Statewide races, from governor to agriculture commissioner, will be decided at their state conventions on April 11-13.

In some races, district conventions will be held next week to nominate candidates for offices which cover more than one county.
