The recent resignation of Gillespie County Elections Administrator Anissa Herrera and her staff has been garnering national headlines due to their reasons for quitting their posts.

Herrera’s resignation letter stated, “We have accomplished many positive changes during the last three years, most visibly modernizing the method of voting and acquiring a new voting system. However, there are some negative changes that have also happened in the elections landscape.”

According to Herrera’s letter, elections officials received threats, “dangerous misinformation,” unpaid compensation and “absurd” legislation. Herrera wrote, “In light of these changes and for my health and well-being, I am resigning as Elections Administrator.”

According to the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post, Herrera said Gillespie County Attorney Steven Wadsworth suggested she forward the threats to the Fredericksburg Police Department. The newspaper reported that after filing Freedom of Information Requests to the Fredericksburg Police Department and the Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office, no complaints or reports were found to have been made in the past three years.

The Fredericksburg newspaper says that Herrera has not responded to their requests for a comment on the matter.
