It appears that the clerk is responsible for setting polling locations and counting ballots, while the tax-assessor collector is responsible for voter registration, which is new in Harris Co, but the number of polling places seems to be a matter of State mandate.Are you certain? Again, I've had trouble finding the exact rules - but it seems from this guide prepared by the Secretary of State that the state regulations set a minimum for the number of polling places (and have a bunch of other requirements regarding their location and other factors), but not the specific number:https://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/forms/precinct-and-pol...It's been oddly hard to find out for sure. There's lots of articles and discussion about how the new state law affects the distribution of polling places within the county, but no discussion about the basic question of who sets the number of polling places in the first place.Albaby
