This has always puzzled me a little bit, though. In Texas (and in Georgia, where this happens a lot), who decides how many polling places there should be? Here in Florida, those decisions are made at the county level.
it appears that the County Clerk was responsible for elections matters as chief elections official; recently the commission appointed a Latina to a newly created elections administration position. Both appear to be democrats of color


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.
