I was a full-time Galveston resident since birth at St. Mary's Hospital. I now reside in Germany, since 2003.

I was a little delinquent in registering to vote and then requesting a ballot. Through an international service for ex-pats, which supplied me with my county contact, I received the email address of Cindy Eddy. Her title is ballot coordinator, I believe. She guided me through the entire process.

I then sent my ballot to the wrong address at 59th Street instead of the county clerk's P.O. Box. Ah so, luckily my ballot did arrive to Eddy. She delivered it to the proper office.

During this two-week wait from my mail to Galveston, she was very helpful. More importantly, very nice. Many thanks, Cindy Eddy.
