Why One of the Most Important Races in Texas is a Local Race in Houston
How One Election Could Change Voter Registration in Texas
Luckily for Democrats, Sullivan’s seat is up for reelection this fall, and his challenger, Ann Harris Bennett, is running on the platform of online voter registration.
Bennett, an “experienced administrator with more than 14 years' service as a district court coordinator,” ran for Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector in 2012 but lost by a narrow margin of two-tenths of a percent. This year, she’s coming back swinging.
"I will be advocating for fair and equal appraisal - fair and equal access to the system,"Bennett told the Houston Chronicle editorial board. "I know for a fact that those big businesses downtown aren't suffering, and jumping through hoops, and going through what the average citizen goes through."
Bennett wants to fulfill the promise that Sullivan ran on in 2012-- "bring the office into the 21st century by embracing new technology"-- but clearly didn’t follow.
Mike Sullivan and his politicized ineptitude could be running out of time - giving Bennett and the hope for better voter registration a real opportunity.

Duties of Harris County Tax Assessor Collector – Voter Registrar
Collects, records and disburses property taxes for more than 60 taxing authorities
Motor vehicle registration and vehicle title transfers in Harris County
Register eligible voters and train volunteer deputy voter registrars in Harris County, Texas
It is the responsibility of the Tax Assessor Collector to inform property owners of their property rights, exemptions, rights of protest and the appeal process. The collection function of this office is incredibly important to the economic success of our region. Failure to run an efficient office results in delinquent taxes being uncollected which equates to less tax dollars going to our schools and hospitals.
Delinquent taxpayer information is public record. However, this current administration has used tactics of public humiliation to achieve collection goals. Public humiliation and bullying are cruel, unprofessional, and unacceptable behavior.
It is unacceptable for citizens to face complicated processes, long lines, unjust standards, and inadequate equipment when conducting business with Harris County. My years of experience in public service will enable me to make the necessary changes in order for this government office to serve the people in a timely and efficient manner. Experience with the county in managing volume, solving administrative and logistical problems will serve in making these details of change possible. I know what needs to be done and I know how to do it.
The Voter Registrar should be the county advocate for the voter registration process. I am an advocate for online voter registration and for registered voters to stay registered. I will put an end to past practices of illegal purging of the voter rolls. Online voter registration is successful in other states and it works. The technology is available and has been proven to be secure and cost effective.
Texans deserve to have a simple, secure online voter registration process available to them. There is a cost effective way to register every eligible Texan online. Our Legislature could have made this a reality for Texas, and saved $11 Million registering voters but for the efforts of Mike Sullivan your current Tax Assessor Collector & Voter Registrar in Harris County. I will end those questionable practices of voter suppression and disenfranchisement through improving and moving the current system into our modern era.
