To the voters of Liberty County,
As I continue to work for you as your County Elections Official, I am always striving to make voting easier and more secure for all our voters.
Each election, we receive calls from over-the-road truckers who will be out of the county for a few weeks on runs across the country, and the common question they have is how they can vote. The problem is that the law overlooks the unique positions of these voters are in.
All mail-in ballots must be sent to a permanent mailing address. This presents a problem for voters who do not know where they will be or how long their runs will take. There is simply not a legal remedy at this time.
We know this affects a small number of Liberty Countians, but their vote still matters. We are working with our state legislators to fix this issue. Any over-the-road truckers or anyone that this affects, please reach out to my office at 936-334-5185. We want to hear from you so that we may better serve you and try to resolve this barrier for you in the law.

If you are gone weeks at a time during voting you can early vote. Install a secure locked dropbox mailbox at your resident. You must have a fisical address to vote. You can forward your mail to another address. You can early vote in person or early mail in. If you are gone weeks or months in afraid nothing would work for you. The state only has to supply reasonable services to vote. If you are not able to get to the polls does not mean you are disenfranchised by the county or state
