No Mail in Ballots: Liberty County will not accept any mail-in ballots that states COVID-19 as the reason for requesting a ballot by mail. Liberty County Elections administrator Klint Bush said it is illegal for an election official to accept a mail-in ballot request that does not meet 1 of 3 requirements spelled out in Texas Election code. Mr. Bush said a request for a mail-in ballot is acceptable in the event of a disability, if the voter is  over 65 yeas of age, or if the voter expects to be out of the county during the election. Mr. Bush said unless a Court of Law, the Attorney General, or Secretary of State’s Office directs him to do otherwise, his office will follow the current Texas Election Code.   ************************************************ SSI: Today is the last day for Supplemental Security Income or SSI recipients to provide the IRS with information about qualifying children under the age of 17. The IRS needs this information to be eligible for an additional economic impact payment. This applies to SSI recipients who did not file a 2018 or 2019 tax return.
