Relating to reporting of early voting rosters.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1622 would allow a registered voter to file a complaint with the Secretary of State stating that the early voting clerk in their county is not compliant with certain of their statutorily required duties. This bill would also require the Secretary of State to create and maintain a system for receiving and recording complaints and to maintain a record of which counties and early voting clerks failed to comply.
Texas Action supports HB 1622 because it espouses the limited government and individual liberty principles by protecting Texas elections. This bill would bring additional transparency to the voting process by giving voters a tool to report early voting clerks suspected of violating their duties and creating a record of early voting clerks not adequately performing their duties.
