Livingston Mail Ballots

Recommended Posts

I tried to find this elsewhere but have not yet.  Does anyone know when they are mailing out the ballots if we have already applied for a ballot by mail and are eligible to  receive one?

We asked them and the printing of the ballots was delayed, some judge wanted something changed. They were suppose to receive the ballots Friday and were going to do the Escapees first(how they know this I don't know). So mailing should start sometime this week if all goes to plan.

According to a post on Escapees Facebook pages, someone spoke to the County Clerk and the ballots were to go into the mail on Friday, Oct. 2.

In Dallas Co. the ballots were mailed out about a week ago and we have already returned ours.

I spoke to the mail center earlier in the week and ours still have not arrived.   Beginning to wonder if we will get to vote?

Our absentee ballots were mailed from Polk county on October 2nd and they are still not at the Escapees mail box. 12 days ( Ijust called the mail center). They have to go from Livingston to Houston North Central USPS and back to Livingston.  I could ride my bike there and back is a lot less time.   

I tried calling USPS Customer DIS-Service and the wait time is over an hour.  I filed a email complaint and now see how long they take to answer that. 

I guess we will be driving to Livingston and making a provisional ballot if we can't get them as we have in the past.

Picked ours up today. Our mail went out Thursday (8th), and was at the Post Office in Medina, TX (General Delivery) on Saturday. Because of the holiday we weren't able to pick it up until this morning. Ballots heading back tomorrow.

Just curious Ken are  you folks in Tomball since you stated they are known for be slow and maybe worse?  Hopefully yours will turn up soon.   As I said, I got mine this morning about 11:30 NM time and hit the outgoing by 3:30 (15:00)local time.

Received ours today (sent out on Wednesday the 7th) , will be mailed back tomorrow.   Frustating that it takes a week to get Priority Mail!

I had forgotten I had my primary ballot and apparently my general election ballot sent to my brother until his significant other brought it home Sunday. I had sent a message to my mail box in SD a week ago inquiring and only received an application in response. Was going to follow up this week until my surprise Sunday morning. My brother admitted it had arrived and he had forgotten about it. Filled it out and mailed it yesterday. I sure hope my vote counts.

No reason why it wouldn't. The absentee ballots have served well for years and a few state have had everyone voting by mail for a long time. There is a need to get it mailed early but mailed ballots needn't have been a political issue if no candidate had made it so.

Absolutely agree, especially the last 7 words but  admit to being more nervous about it this time around.

That does seem to be the purpose for all of the publicity.

Just got notice from the mail center that our ballots were there.  Now to get them to where we are ... FedEx

Bigjim, the USPS in Houston and Tomball have been on the local news several times over the past few years due to slow service and disappearing mail.  We had a Priority mail sent from Livingston to us in Tomball and it took 13 days.  For 3 of those days the USPS had it shown as delivered.  After two trips to the Tomball P.O. and talking to the postmaster, the envelope mysteriously showed up.  This was not the first  time and others in the park had issues as well.   Since these issues, we will not use us anything but the Fed-EX flat rate envelopes in Tomball and Houston.
