The majority of us want to be able to cast our ballots freely, safely, and equally. Unfortunately, some state officials have gone to extraordinary lengths to try to deny Texans the freedom to vote. This impacts all Texans, but especially voters of color, people with disabilities, and people whose first language is not English. We have already seen the impacts on vote-by-mail, with applications being rejected and now ballots being rejected at alarmingly high rates.
Thankfully, in Harris County and across the state, local election officials and voting advocates are working around the clock to ensure that no Texan is denied the freedom to vote.
If you experience any issues at the polls, please call the Harris County Elections Helpline at 713-755-6965.
I also want to take this time to thank our dedicated election workers for providing exceptional service to voters.
We hope you will turn out to vote for the candidates of your choice. Ultimately, this is how you can make your voice heard and influence the decisions that will have lasting impacts on the lives of you, your future and our community.
