In his capacity as Bexar County’s Criminal District Attorney, Joe Gonzales also has a duty to advise the Bexar County Elections Office. On the first day of Early Voting, Gonzales announced the creation of a District Attorney Election Response Team. The team will consist of five attorneys and will be available to Elections Administrator Jacquelyn Callanen and her staff to provide clarity on polling site questions and resolve any issues through Election Day.
“I want to reassure all Bexar County voters that casting a ballot at a polling site is safe and secure. No voter should worry about whether his or her vote is going to be counted. I know our Elections Office is prepared for a record-breaking turnout and I want voters and the Elections Office staff to know that we are here to help them,” Gonzales said.
It is important to note that the District Attorney Election Response Team is only handling inquiries from the Elections Office staff. Citizen concerns and complaints must be filed with law enforcement so they may be thoroughly investigated and filed with the District Attorney’s Office for possible prosecution.
