The municipal election just wrapped up Saturday, and now early voting has already begun for the state’s primary election.

Confusion over election dates due to the state’s redistricting battle pushed primary election day to May 29, one day after Memorial Day.

UT Political Science Professor Jim Henson says encouraging voters to cast their ballot early is key for candidates.

“The impression we’re getting is that the campaigns are working very hard to mobilize their voters early in order to sort of back fill against the possibility of folks coming back from a three-day weekend, and not being particularly attentive to politics and not turning out to vote," Henson said.

Robert Eller works for Adan Ballesteros’ campaign for Constable Precinct Two. Eller posted campaign signs outside a polling location Monday in hopes that it will remind voters to come out and cast their ballot.

"I’m hoping that it does draw attention, and hopefully it will get people out here to vote," Eller said.

Henson says on the crowded Republican side of the U.S. Senate race, low turnout could prove problematic for the frontrunner, David Dewhurst. Polls show challenger Ted Cruz is steadily gaining support.

"If the Cruz campaign can make some inroads among conservative voters, convince them that Cruz is the more conservative candidate than the more established politician David Dewhurst, then the low turnout could break Cruz’s way," Henson said.

If the race goes to a runoff, that election would happen in July—an even worse time for voter turn out.

Due to the unusual timing of the primaries, some election offices are also having problems finding election judges.

Travis County is still in need of about 100 judges for May 29.
