Yesterday, I spoke with Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade and the Director of Elections about the complaints my office has received about active military not being able to vote. If you are impacted by this issue, here is what you need to know:

1)If you are having trouble getting your ballot, please contact the Texas Secretary of Stateís office immediately @ 512.463.5650.

2)You can also submit an official complaint here:

3)All ballots must be received by November 13, 2012.

The Secretary of Stateís office is working hard to ensure that all members of our military can exercise their right to vote. Members of the Armed Services fight daily in order to protect our liberty; we must protect theirs. If you have any other questions, please call my office at 281-446-0242.
