Breaking Down The Biggest Races In This Year's Elections.

Tomorrow, Texans will head to the polls for one of its most important votes in quite some time. And that's not just hyperbole.

With no incumbents running for any of the state's major offices, the results of this year's election will culminate in one of the biggest government overhauls the state has seen in recent memory.

As we pointed out last week, it's been 24 years since none of the candidates in the governor's race have had ties to the incumbent. Even crazier? It's been 14 years since anyone not named Perry has held the office.

So no matter who wins or loses, tomorrow's going to be a game-changer.

Still, as the Associated Press' Paul J. Weber points out, the importance of this year's election hasn't necessarily translated to a higher early voting turnout.

Writes Weber: “Nearly 1.3 million people in the state's largest counties had cast a ballot through the first 10 days, a figure that's slightly up from the last midterm election in 2010 but down in terms of total percentage of registered voters.”

One reason given to explain the drop in voters is the length and complexity of this year's ballots. To that end, we've put together some graphics to help break down the candidates in some of the biggest elections affecting Dallas county residents.
