Houston will have a new mayor in 2015 via one of the stranger electoral processes across the United States.
In what is fondly referred to some as a ‘jungle’ or ‘Louisiana’ primary, voters in Houston will go to the polls on May 9, 2015 to cast their votes for the candidate they want for November’s run-off.
Democrat, Republican, Independent and everyone else running for mayor will be pitted against each other, with just the top two vote getting candidates making it to the next round.
A possible key issue for this election could be the Houston Gay Rights Ordinance Referendum that ‘could’ be on the ballot in November. And without the aforementioned party specific primaries, this issue might turn the tide on each candidate’s campaign.
