The City of Huntsville has just updated its Elections web page with scans of the City’s historic Election Register.
City Secretary Lee Woodward says, “Since the 1980s, the Texas Election Code has required that each canvassing authority maintain an election register as part of its permanent records.” She said, “These minutes include tabulated information on election results and may have additional historical information that is not necessarily in the regular meeting minutes, making them both more interesting and useful in additional ways.”
While the City permanent minute books extend back to the 1800s, the Election Register has been maintained separately, containing information from January 1988 to the present.
Links by decade have been added to the City Secretary Elections page on the City web site.
Viewers may navigate from the home page at www.huntsvilletx.gov, scroll over the “City Government” tab, then scroll over “City Secretary,” select Elections and open the desired register on the resulting page.
