Vote Centers Coming To Collin Co. For Election Day This November!

Sharon Rowe, the Collin County Elections Administrator, this afternoon notified Vote Center Site Selection Committee members by email that Ann McGeehan, Director of Elections in the Texas Secretary of State office, selected Collin County to participate in the County Wide Vote Center Program for the November 3, 2009 election. Ms. Rowe indicated that, "A formal letter from the State will arrive [at the Collin County Elections office] later today."

The U.S. Dept. of Justice (DOJ) must give final clearance for Collin County to implement the "County Wide Vote Center" plan under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1964. The DOJ may not make their final ruling on the vote center plan for until late September or some time in October.
