There will be many names on the ballot for the state wide election on March 4, 2014.  It may help to see a sample ballot before going to vote. The official Texas Secretary of State's website, www.sos.state.tx.us has information you may want to review.  When that page opens, click on the menu near the top, then click on the "election menu".  On the upper right you will see a place to click to view a sample ballot for the Republicans and/or Democrats running in their primaries statewide.

If you wish to have a ballot showing candidates on your local ballot, Google your county's web page.  For example, Google Medina County, then clicked on their web page.  On the left side menu, put the cursor on "Additional County Offices" to get a side menu that has "Elections." Clicking on that opens a page with all the information needed for the upcoming election.  You will find sample ballots for the Republicans and Democrats near the bottom of the page.  It is in yellow and identical to the ones that will posted on the wall at the election sites. Other counties will probably have that feature also.  You can Google the party website for your county and most likely find sample ballots on those pages.
