County to Hold Public Hearing Jan. 12th

Pages from Survey ResultsAccording to the voters who turned out and took the time to answer a short Q&A, the Countywide Polling Place Program seems to have been a big success. This program allowed eligible voters to vote at any designated polling location on Election Day instead of being required to vote only at his or her home precinct polling location.  That is good news, but the County would like to hear from the public regarding this program. So, on January 12, the Fort Bend County Commissioners Court will hold another Public Hearing  at Commissioners Court in Richmond on the continued use of this program.  I am proud to say that Meadows Place was instrumental in bringing about Countywide voting and doubly proud that the number of people voting at Meadows Place City Hall put us in the top 10% of all Fort Bend polling locations. Voters here, as well as those passing through the city seemed to like it.  The following is a copy of the Notice of that hearing.  The County Commissioners will be at your disposal and are anxious to hear your feedback on the new Countywide Polling Place Program.

The following is a copy of that notice.
