FORT WORTH — Texas Secretary of State John Scott today visited with Collin County Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet, Dallas County Elections Administrator Michael Scarpello and Tarrant County Elections Administrator Heider Garcia ahead of Election Day to discuss election administration and the full forensic audit now underway to enhance voters' confidence in the integrity of Texas' elections. All three counties have publicly committed to complying with the largest forensic election audit (PDF) undertaken in Texas history to maintain confidence in the integrity of Texas elections. Secretary Scott made clear his priority is to ensure Texas voters can trust the accuracy and reliability of our state's voting systems, and commended all three officials for their commitment to transparency and accountability.

"Our county election officials are the guardians of our democracy, and I am proud to have visited with the top election officers in three of Texas' largest counties to learn more about their duties and responsibilities in safeguarding Texas elections," Secretary Scott said.

"Election integrity is critical to Texas and the entire country. By building greater trust and confidence in the accuracy and reliability of our elections systems, Texans can rest assured that only eligible voters are able to participate in Texas elections and that election officials are following the law when carrying out the most important function of representative government. I thank Bruce, Michael and Heider for taking the time to visit with me today on the last day of Early Voting, and encourage all eligible Texans who have not yet voted to cast their ballot on Tuesday, November 2nd!"
