EDINBURG — The formation of voting centers for the upcoming November elections continues to be a hot-button topic with Yvonne Ramon, director of the Elections Department, recommending adding 31 voting sites at this week’s Hidalgo County Commissioners’ Court.
Using the voter center concept, any Hidalgo County resident could vote at any voting site regardless of whether it was located in the precinct where they lived.
Judge Ramon Garcia questioned whether the purpose of voting center might be to reduce the number of locations for voting and save money by creating centers convenient to voters.
