RE: Waiver of Partial Manual Count for the May 14, 2011 Uniform Election Date

This is your official notification that the partial manual count will be waived for the May 14, 2011 uniform election date and any possible runoff election. Under Section 127.201(a) of the Texas Election Code (the “Code”), the general custodian of election records in an election in which an electronic voting system is used is required to conduct a manual count in one percent of the election precincts or three election precincts, whichever is greater. Tex. Elec. Code Ann. § 127.201(a) (Vernon Supp. 2010). Section 127.201(f) of the Code gives the Secretary of State authority to waive the requirement of a manual count.

Those political subdivisions contracting with the county for the conduct of the May election should inform the county clerk/elections administrator that the partial manual count has been waived.
