Houston, TX – Tuesday is the last day in the early voting period for the December 12, City of Houston and HISD Runoff Election. Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart urges voters to “Grab your photo ID and head to the polls”! Thirty-one early voting locations in Harris County will be open from 7 am to 7 pm on Tuesday, Dec. 8. Eligible voters are not required to have voted in the Nov. 3 Election to vote in the runoff.
Stanart, the Chief Election Officer of the County, reminds voters that Election Day is on a Saturday, a day most citizens devote to family, household chores, leisure and relaxation. “Don’t wait until the last minute and take the chance that a busy weekend schedule may not allow you to vote in this important election.” Stanart also notes: “On Election Day, one must vote at the polling location designated for their precinct.”
