Harris County Receives Successful Status For Countywide Polling Place Program
Houston, TX– Harris County has earned successful status from the Texas Secretary of State’s Office for the Countywide Polling Place Program following the May 4, 2019 Joint Election. Harris County is the largest county in the country to have executed a successful election where voters can cast a ballot at any polling location. Approximately 36% of voters traveled outside of their home precinct to vote on Election Day. In the upcoming November election, voters will once again be able to vote anywhere in the county both on Election Day and during Early Voting. “Feedback from communities across the county has been largely positive, and I am pleased that voters will continue to be able to choose a convenient location to cast their ballot” said Harris County Clerk Dr. Diane Trautman. Dr. Trautman began championing the Countywide Polling Place Program shortly after taking office in January. The County Clerk’s office held multiple public hearings and meetings about the program ahead of the unanimous vote by Harris County Commissioners Court to apply for the program in February. “Voting is a fundamental right, and it is of the utmost importance that the ballot is accessible to all residents of Harris County,” explained Trautman. Voters can find more information on the Countywide Polling Place Program by visiting www.HarrisVotes.com or by calling the Harris County Clerk’s office at 713.755.6965.
Council Member Larry V. Green 1965-2018
Last month on March 6, 2018, it was a complete shock to the District K staff and the rest of Houston to hear of the sudden passing of Council Member Larry Green. "The District K staff is sincerely appreciative of all the heartfelt prayers and thoughts as the "Green Dream Team" continues to transition during this bereavement period." states Martha Castex-Tatum, District K Constituent Services Director. "Council Member Green was a man that lived life to the fullest. He accomplished a lot and was well loved by his constituents and peers." Council Member Green was a graduate of Madison High School, earned his BA in political science from the University of Houston and his doctorate in jurisprudence from Texas Southern University. He practiced law in private practice for over 20 years while volunteering countless hours of his personal time to a number of civic causes before serving as a congressional aide, and later the director of the job training non-profit HoustonWorksUSA. Council Member Green was first elected to Houston City Council in 2012, after the creation of the newly formed District K. He was the first council member to hold the seat for this new council district. During his tenure on City Council, Council Member Green championed for economic development to District K, often boasting that District K had the largest number of empty lots within the city, prime for residential or commercial development, and focused on a number of job creation programs to improve the quality of life of the constituents. Additionally, Council Member Green served as the Chair of the Transportation, Technology, and Infrastructure Committee at City Hall, and was also an active board member for the Texas Municipal League and the National League of Cities. "In spirit, his legacy lives on. The District K office will continue to thrive and move the council office forward and upward," states Donald Perkins, District K Chief of Staff.
