2006 election

On June 28, 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that the Texas legislature's redistricting plan violated the Voting Rights Act in the case of District 23. As a result, on August 4, 2006, a 3 judge panel announced replacement district boundaries for 2006 election for the 23rd district, as well as for the 15th, 21st, 25th and 28th districts. On election day in November, these 5 districts will have open primaries; if any candidate receives over 50%, they're elected. Otherwise, a runoff election in December will decide the seat. [1]
