Hays County Commissioners Respond to Citizens so More Can Vote

Texas — U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, who represents much of Hays County, released the below statement on today’s emergency action from Hays County Commissioners, after Rep. Doggett and others previously called for greater Early Voting accessibility:

“Commendation to the Hays County Commissioners for responding promptly in a bipartisan way to calls of many local community leaders by removing practical barriers to our neighbors voting. The unprecedented Hays registration and early turnout is cause for celebrating our democracy. It certainly justifies this important emergency action to permit more early voting and better election day poll access. Whatever the election outcome in individual races, now more folks in the county will be decision-makers. Other jurisdictions across America would do well to stop raising voting barriers by following Hays County’s example. Thanks to the Texas Civil Rights Project as a valued watchdog, and congratulations to MOVE Texas for continued success in moving more young Texans to the polls.  Now let’s eat em’ up, Cats!” – Rep. Lloyd Doggett
