Waiver of Partial Manual Count after the May 6, 2017 Uniform Election Date

This is your official notification that the partial manual count will be waived for the May 6, 2017 uniform 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 contact the Elections Division at elections@sos.texas.gov or call toll-free at 1-800-252-VOTE(8683).
