Katy, TX (May 16, 2016) The recent flooding continues to affect everything from our commutes to work to extensive repair work on hundreds of homes throughout our community.
As I hope you know, early voting starts today and runs through this Friday, (May 20) in the Republican and Democratic party primary runoffs. Early Voting is this week only Monday – Friday from 7 am to 7 pm. Election day is Tuesday, May 24.
However, due to the flooding, two of our area’s most popular polling locations will be closed. Fortunately, Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart has opened two other convenient locations to replace them.
We will not be able to vote at the Bear Creek Park Community Center off of Hwy 6 or the Glen Cheek building in George Bush Park, because they are both under water.
However, we will be able to vote at:
* the MUD 81 building at 805 Hidden Canyon Road ( just west of Mason Road, at Cimarron Parkway, about 1 ½ miles south of I-10) and
*Lone Star College – Cypress Center at 19710 Clay Road (just east of Fry Road, directly across the street from Rhoads Elementary).
Additionally, there are two other new Early Voting locations that you might find convenient:
*Fallbrook Church ,12512 Walters Road, (near Klein Forest High School) to support voters northwest of I-45 and Beltway 8
*SPJST Lodge #88, 1435 Beall Street (near TC Jester in the Heights) to support voters near the Memorial Park/Heights area.
Of course, in early voting you are always free to vote at any of the 44 early voting locations in Harris County.
The offices on the ballot in this election include Republican runoffs for Railroad Commissioner, two Court of Criminal Appeals seats, and chairman of the Harris County Republican Party. Democrats have races for offices including Railroad Commissioner, three district court judges, Sheriff, State Board of Education, Justice of the Peace, and Constable. These are important offices and I hope you will make your voice heard by exercising your right to vote.
Thank you again for allowing me the honor of representing you. Please let me know if there’s anything that my office can do to be of service to you.
