Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

The Texas Election Code provides that municipal elections are to be administered by special officers called Election Judges. These judges are paid, independent officers who oversee the balloting on Election Day in a particular precinct, and are assisted by an alternate judge and election clerks. The City Council is vested with the authority to appoint Election Judges and Alternate Election Judges.

 

The Election Code also provides for a special board, the Early Voting Ballot Board, to oversee mail-in balloting and provisional voting. This board reviews all mail-in ballots to ensure that they were properly cast by the voter who requested them. They will also determine the validity of votes cast by provisional voters on Election Day. The City Council is vested with the authority to appoint the Presiding Judge of the Board.
