A UNIQUE PUBLICATION
This invaluable reference is the only administrative Texas election law manual of its kind.
“I am so impressed by the depth of information provided in this essential manual. I reach for it first when I have an election question! And how easy is it to read the Election Manual? Simple—it is written for clerks by an expert attorney who understands what we do and how important it is to ‘get it right’ when it comes to fair, legal, and smooth elections! Without the Manual, I would be searching for hours in the Election Code... but when I do want to read the Code, our Election Manual conveniently provides the citation on where to find the law. You must have this manual—it is absolutely indispensable. I guarantee results and assurance in knowing you've got answers at your fingertips!”
--Patrice Fogarty, TRMC, City Secretary, City of Missouri City
