Sen. Bettencourt presses complaints on integrity of voter rolls, asks for state solution

Bettencourt has targeted two locations – one in Rep. Jim Murphy’s district and one in Rep. Sarah Davis’ district – to point out people are voting from something other than their home address

Sen. Paul Bettencourt is pressing the Department of Public Safety and the Secretary of State’s office to close a loophole that would allow people to vote from a post office box address.

The pressure is on during this election season and Bettencourt, like many Harris County Republicans, is feeling the heat even in the suburbs.

Four years ago, when Bettencourt was elected senator, suburban Harris County was solid Dan Patrick country.

Now it seems more purple, Bettencourt admits.
