RE:

Partial Manual Count after the March 1, 2016 Primary Election Date

This is your official notification that the partial manual count will be waived for the March 1, 2016 primary election. Under Section 127.201(a) of the Texas Election Code (the “Code”), the general custodian of election records in an election in which an electronic voting system is used is required to conduct a manual count in one percent of the election precincts or three election precincts, whichever is greater. Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 127.201(a). Section 127.201(f) of the Code gives the Secretary of State authority to waive the requirement of a manual count.

If you have any questions, please email the Elections Division or call toll-free at 1-800-252-VOTE(8683).
