IN-PERSON EARLY VOTING BEGINS FOR MARCH 2 PRIMARY ELECTIONS: STRONG TURNOUT WILL NOT SURPRISE

 

Houston, TX, – Early voting by personal appearance for the upcoming Democratic and Republican Primary Elections in Harris County is set to begin, Tuesday, Feb. 16th and continue until Feb. 26th

“In the aftermath of the 2008 primary elections, a strong turnout during this year’s primaries will not be surprising. But, without the presidential contest at the top of the ballot, it will be difficult to replicate our record turnout of two years ago of almost 600,000 voters,” said Harris County Clerk Beverly Kaufman, the chief elections officer of the County. “Voting during the in-person early voting period and by mail may be telling.”

As of Thursday, Feb 11th, the Harris County Clerk’s office had responded to 25,747 ballot-by-mail requests. The current 2010 ballot-by-mail requests are short of the 2008 March primaries overall total of 29,970. But, the current total is higher than the 2006 primary elections total of 21,097, the last non-presidential year primary elections in the County. The ballot-by-mail application deadline for the 2010 primary election cycle is Feb. 23rd.

A report of the total number of persons processed for voting at each early voting site during the early voting period and the mail ballot requests processed will be posted on a daily basis on the Clerk’s election page, www.harrisvotes.com, after the polls close starting Feb. 16th.

The hours of service at the county’s early voting locations are as follows: Tuesday to Friday, Feb, 16th to 19th, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 20th, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Sunday, Feb. 21st, 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Feb. 22th to 26th, 7:00 am to 7:00 p.m.

In total for the March 2, 2010 Democratic Party and Republican Party Primary Elections there are thirty-seven early voting locations in Harris County:
