Join us November 1, 2021, 6:30pm-7:00pm, at the San Marcos Public Library for our briefing:
“Hays County vs. the Texas Election Code”
We chose a fairly provocative title for our debut public briefing event that begs the question of how Hays County may be at odds with the Texas Election Code. If that made you want to know more, you’re our kind of people.
This coming Monday evening we’ll point out a few important sections of the Election Code that Hays County does not follow, and the potential impacts that could have on future elections. Beyond the direct ties to the Election Code, we’ve also identified a number of process, procedure and control issues that must be remedied, and we’ll be covering some of those as well.
The ultimate result of our best practices research is that we’ll be rolling out series of policy initiative recommendations (“Initiatives” in our lingo) that, when adopted, will each represent a significant step forward in ensuring that each ballot is counted-as-cast.
Turning Knowledge into Power
Citizen advocates have been hard at work for election integrity in Hays County going back to 2015 when we began observing central count operations. In the wake of the 2016 election fiasco that took place right here in Hays County (an overturned election that led to the 2017 discovery of 1,816 uncounted votes), citizen efforts became significant amplified, but to little response from our local elected officials.
Since that time, a few have stayed at it and continued to identify and document additional issues that are as yet unresolved, and we’ll be explaining those issues with you in the History section of this website between now and the end of 2021. Then heading into January 2022, we’ll be announcing our EIPHays Initiatives Plan.
