Those races include sending a representative to Congress for District 27.

That district consists of the Gulf Coast area all the way up to Bastrop County near Austin and Wharton County near Houston.

There are two Democratic candidates in that race.

Meanwhile, we have two familiar faces who are squaring off in the race for the 347th District Court for the Republican side.

The winner will run against the unopposed Democrat in November.

Likewise, two veteran prosecutors are facing off for District Attorney on the Republican ticket.

The Democratic is also unopposed.

Voters will also decide who moves forward as the Democratic candidate for the Nueces County Commissioner Precinct 3.

That precinct includes a portion of Corpus Christi and the cities of Robstown, Driscoll and Agua Dulce.

The Republican candidate is running unopposed.

Another big race we'll be keeping an eye on tonight is the race for San Patricio County sheriff.

There are two Republicans vying to be the "top cop" in San Pat county.

There are no Democratic candidates in that race, so the winner won't be going up against anyone in November.

Here’s a look at the reporters and the races they will be covering tonight.
