There seems to be a great deal of confusion about what Governor Greg Abbott did earlier today.
In case you missed the left’s collective social media hissy fit, Gov. Abbott specified that mail-in ballots could be turned in to one location in each county during early voting.
It could have been worse for the left, Abbott could have completely rescinded an earlier proclamation and defaulted to the law which allows for mail ballots to 1) be mailed (hint: it’s in the name) or 2) be delivered in person on election day to the clerk’s office.
A plain reading of this first proclamation looks like what he’s allowing for today, a necessary clarification after hack liberal election officials in mainly in Houston and Austin set up a system to abuse the leeway granted by that order.
Specifically, they expanded the number of locations where ballots could be dropped off and accepting ballots in-person weeks before early voting is set to start.
Abbott gave an inch, and they took a mile. Now he’s correcting that disparity, and again, it could and should have arguably been worse.
Direct Action Texas is the only organization that’s been publicly calling for the curtailment of this provision.Read More
