Voters Run from Run-Off Election

That comes as no surprise to HarrisCounty Clerk Beverly Kaufman. She says elections officials expected thelow-turnout.

"I just think generally voters are more attracted to top-of-the-ballot typecandidates and of course they get a lot more advertising and a lot moreto get their attention."

Kaufman says voters who didn't vote in the primary can still vote in the run-off. She says voting locations are most likely different than they werein March.

"You can't assume that where you voted in March is going to be open today. Most likely, it will not be and you need to either call my informationline, 713-755-6965, go to on the web and we've got a streaming button there to click on and find your polling place."

The run-off races include the contest between 22nd Congressional DistrictRepublican hopefuls Shelley Sekula Gibbs and Pete Olson. The winner willface Democrat Nick Lampson in November. Also, GOP Harris County DistrictAttorney candidates Kelly Siegler and Pat Lykos face-off in today's run-off. The winner faces Democrat C.O. Bradford in November.
