Mike Sullivan Releases Top 30 Reasons to Register to Vote

Time is running out, Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan is urging all citizens to register to vote.

“This year’s election will be historic as we vote on a new president, vice president, members of Congress and local elected officials,” said Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan. “I want every eligible person registered to vote. That’s why I’m releasing a Top 30 Reasons to Register to Vote.”

The Top 30 List will be posted on the Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office website and shared on social media.

Citizens can register to vote at any local library, post office or Tax Assessor-Collector’s office branch location. Voter registration applications must be received by my office or postmarked by October 11, 2016 for the applicant to be eligible to vote in the 2016 General Election. If a registered voter has moved within Harris County or changed their name, they can update their voter registration information by visiting www.hctax.net and clicking on the Name/Address Change button under the Voter Registration tab.

Currently, Harris County has more than 2.1 million registered voters. Residents may check their voter registration status at www.hctax.net or they can call (713) 274-8200 or email voters@hctx.net if they have questions.

Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan also serves as the Harris County Voter Registrar, which conducts voter registration activities and maintains a certified list of registered voters. Learn more about voter registration and the requirements by visiting www.hctax.net.
