Workshop on Voting Centers Now Scheduled
The Hays County Commissioners Court has scheduled a special session of the court for Monday, August 19 at 5 p.m. at the Hays County Courthouse in the Commissioners Courtroom. The event is a Commissioners Court workshop on the proposed locations of Vote Centers, as well as the proposed Election Judges and Alternates for each of the proposed locations. Elections Administrator Jennifer Anderson is scheduled to be there.
The meeting, agenda, and related documents are posted here.
Originally proposed for the August 13 Commissioners Court agenda, after considerable public pushback the vote on the proposed locations and election judges was delayed to the August 20 regular session of the Commissioners Court. The deadline for counties to submit their locations and election judges to the Secretary of State is August 22.
The public has a small window of opportunity to push for changes to proposed locations, and the team of judges and alternates that would serve any new location. It is advisable to come prepared with specifics about your wants and solutions to problems you identify.
If you cannot attend in person but would like to submit comments by email, here is the contact information.
