From one election to the next: Early voting in state and county primaries kicks off today.

It's time to vote – again. On the heels of Austin's city election Saturday, early voting for the state and county primaries starts today, and runs through May 25.

The primary was originally scheduled for March but was pushed back because of disagreements over redistricting. Voters will get to choose the party nominees for President, the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives, among others.

In Travis County, voters will cast primary ballots for offices including district attorney, sheriff, and more.

Travis County voters can cast a ballot at any one of 18 early voting locations. Most open at 8 a.m. Election day is May 29.

Here’s some election resources:
