Texas Supreme Court lets state law eliminating Harris County elections chief stand, for now

The Texas Supreme Court on Tuesday denied Harris County’s request to temporarily block a new law that eliminates the county’s elections administrator position. Senate Bill 1750, passed by Republican lawmakers in May, is slated to go into effect Sept. 1, weeks before early voting starts for the November elections in the state’s largest county. The law requires Harris County to transfer all election-related duties from elections administrator Clifford Tatum, who was appointed just before the November 2022 elections, to the county clerk and the county tax assessor-collector.
