On Saturday, June 25, 2016, Senator Rodney Ellis won the Democratic nomination for Harris County Commissioner Precinct One, putting him on the path to leave the Legislature by next year.
As a result, Ellis must withdraw from the November ballot in Senate District 13, which extends across Harris and Fort Bend counties. He will be replaced on the ballot by whichever Democrat can win the support of a majority of precinct chairs in the district. The replacement will run unopposed in November.
Precinct chairs will select a replacement on Saturday, July 16, 2016, from 10am to 12pm at the CWA Local Union 6222, 1730 Jefferson St, Houston, TX 77002, USA.
