A call to add an early-voting site at the campus of a historically black college in Waller County came to an impasse Wednesday, as commissioners and members of the public debated whether it were needed and where it would go.

County commissioners voted 3-2 to postpone a decision on whether to offer two days of early voting at Prairie View A&M University ahead of the March 1 primary. County Judge Trey Duhon and Commissioner Jeron Barnett dissented.

The meeting took place before a packed room at the Waller County Courthouse in Hempstead. It was the third time the five-person court had discussed early-voting polling places for the rural county west of Houston.
