CYPRESS — Early voting for the Harris County Flood Control District Bond Election gets underway Wednesday, August 8, and ends Tuesday, August 21. Forty-five locations will be available to Harris County registered voters to cast their ballots during the early voting period.
“This is the easiest type of election in which voters may participate because there is only one item on the ballot,” said Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart, the chief election officer of the County. “Voters may view the proposed project list to make Harris County more resilient from flooding at https://www.hcfcd.org/bond-program/.”
Voters are strongly advised to review the detailed early voting schedule at www.HarrisVotes.com before heading to a polling location to cast their ballot.
Currently, there are approximately 2.3 million registered voters in Harris County. Mail ballots have been sent to 68,000 voters who are eligible to vote by mail. A third, 23,000, of those voters have already returned their mail ballot to the election office.
“This is an important election. All voters are encouraged to participate,” concluded Stanart.
