Henderson County Elections Administrator Denise Hernandez might finally have a date for primary elections.

Just don’t expect pulling it together to be easy.

After months of wrangling, a federal court in San Antonio released interim redistricting maps Tuesday, a move which increase the chances the state will see primary elections on May 29. Obstacles remain and the maps could still be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, but officials are optimistic.
