BOWIE COUNTY, Texas (KTAL/KMSS) – Bowie County Commissioners on Monday approved a contract providing for election security.

Elections Administrator Pat McCoy said this particular package deals with external cybersecurity administration.  He added that the money will come from a $130,000 grant through the Help Americans Vote Act.
