Galveston Independent School District’s tax ratification election is coming Tuesday.
But it has already broken new ground.
Typically, you’d expect 20 to 25 ballots by mail in such an election.
As of Wednesday, election workers had 319.
What’s up? A new law allowing the annual ballots by mail.
If you’re at least 65 years old or are disabled, you can sign up for the service.
If you’re eligible, mail ballots will be sent to you, automatically, for all elections in your jurisdiction.
It’s a nice service, and people obviously are taking advantage of it.
