The 2020 political campaign season officially starts this Saturday, November 9, 2019. All Republicans seeking a constitutionally created political office, which is exclusively within Waller County, must file an application for a place on the General Primary Ballot with the County Chairman beginning November 9th and ending December 9, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
I will be at the Party Headquarters, 350 Hwy 290 E, Hempstead, Texas on Saturday from 9:00 am to 11:00 am to receive candidate’s applications. The applications must be on the approved form (2-2) which may be downloaded from the Secretary of State’s Website at:
The form must be filled out correctly and notarized. I will have blank forms and a notary at the HQ office on Saturday, should they be needed.
All applications must be accompanied by the proper filing fee. The filing fee for all local offices on the 2020 ballot, except Constable, is $750. The Constable’s filing fee is $375. The fee may be paid by Cash, Check, Cashier’s Check or Money Order. All checks should be made out to: Waller County Republican Party. I would prefer no cash but it will be accepted. Any candidates using personal or campaign checks please note: your application will be received when it is submitted but it cannot be accepted until the check clears the bank.
As required by the Texas Election Code, I am also announcing that I will be at the HQ office on December 9, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to receive last minute filings.
I can be contacted at 713-628-7187 with any questions.
Thank you and good luck to all our candidates!
David W. Luther, Chairman
