← 2016 November 3, 2020 2024 →

The 2020 United States presidential election in Texas is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as part of the 2020 United States elections in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia will participate.[1] Texas voters will choose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote. The state of Texas has 38 electoral votes in the Electoral College.[2]

As of April 2019, Donald Trump and Bill Weld are declared Republican candidates. Texas Governor Greg Abbott declined to run against Trump, as did 2016 Republican primary candidate and current senator Ted Cruz.[3][4]

A number of Democrats are running or have expressed interest in running, and Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and former Texas congressman and senatorial candidate, Beto O'Rourke are among the major declared candidates.[5][6][7][8][9][10]
