Voting Precinct Boundary Changes and Suggestions
To make comments or suggestions regarding the boundary lines of your voting precinct, please contact Ron Layton or Steve Bowers in the Precinct 4 Community Assistance Department at email@example.com or 281-353-8424.
Generally, boundary changes can be made by Commissioners Court in March or April of odd-numbered years. Those changes take effect in January of the following year. However, due to redistricting, the 2011 process has been delayed. The process of changing voting precinct boundary lines is dictated by state law and contingent upon U.S. Department of Justice approval.
Some of the general guidelines include:
A voting precinct must include a suitable building for a polling place.
A voting precinct may not contain territory from more than one of each of the following types of territorial units: a commissioner’s precinct, a justice precinct, a congressional district, a state representative district, a state senatorial district, a city council district or ward in a city with a population of 10,000 or more or a State Board of Education district.
