Ballotpedia can be difficult to navigate, mostly because of its multi-dimensional mission. It contains mostly accurate information about various state and federal elective offices, who currently occupies those offices, and who is running for them in the current election cycle.
Therefore, as a public service, I am seriously getting my Kuffner on and providing handy links to all of Ballotpedia's pages on the 2018 primary races for Texas's
I will add State Board of Education candidates as soon as I find them.
The various pages include names of those who actually filed, those who withdrew, and even some who declined to run. It also includes candidates (and non-candidates) who identify as Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Greens, and Independent. However, the lists of candidates for the State Legislature include only Democrats and Republicans. For Libertarian candidates, see this page on lptexas.org.
Libertarians and Greens will select their nominees in conventions rather than elections.
If you have any interest in Texas electoral politics, you may want to bookmark this entry; I know I will. I will also update it as needed.
UPDATE: Travis Christal is not running as a Green for Comptroller, despite what Ballotpedia indicates. The Texas Green Party co-chairs say that Christal missed the 14 December filing deadline.
