Election Contests and Ballot Measures

March 4, 2008 Democratic Party Primary Election

Texas

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

The Democratic Presidential candidates still in the race at this time include Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. John Edwards, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, and Bill Richardson have withdrawn from the race, but will still appear on ballots. The other ballot office contests have not yet been completed.
