Dirty Tricks: The Residency Game

Posted by |

Jay Harris is the Republican Precinct Chair of Precinct 4006 in Denton County. However, Mr. Harris doesn’t actually live in Precinct 4006.

Harris owns a property in 4006, where he is also registered to vote, but he actually lives in Precinct 1015.

Texas Stalls on Stopping Voter Fraud

Posted by |

In 2014, a Texas judge blocked former State Rep. Lon Burnam from viewing suspicious applications and ballot envelopes he claimed led to his re-election defeat.  Burnam alleged that hundreds of applications for ballot-by-mail were submitted with fraudulent electronic signatures.
