Today marks the first day of early voting for the May Uniform Election that includes the Special Election to fill the seat of Houston City Council Member Larry Green, who died last month of an accidental drug overdose.

Today is also the last day to register to vote for the Primary run-off elections. More than 30 races are on the ballot.

One of the most notable primary runoffs is the democratic gubernatorial race between former Dallas county sheriff Lupe Valdez and Houston businessman Andrew White.

State representative Kevin Roberts and Retired navy seal Dan Crenshaw are going head-to-head to try to replace retiring congressman Ted Poe.

In a heated race democrats Laura Moser and Lizzie Pannill Fletcher are fighting for the chance to unseat Congressman John Culberson, in the 7th district.

That race garnered national attention, when the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released an opposition memo on Moser. There are reports it ended up elevating her status, despite the original intent.

In Harris County, four sites will be available for 86,000 District K registered voters to cast a ballot in person before Election Day.

The Early Voting locations include, the Harris County Administrative Bldg. (1001 Preston, 4th Floor), Fiesta Mart (8130 Kirby Dr.), Hiram Clarke Multi-Service Center (3810 W. Fuqua St.), and Platou Community Center (11655 Chimney Rock Rd.).
