Texans have clarity on voting by mail
Don’t be confused by progressives trying to bum rush Texas elections or fake news irresponsibly published by the Houston Chronicle.
There have been no expansions to who can vote by mail. Texas law is clear, to vote by mail in Texas you need to:
be 65 years or older;
be out of the county on election day and during the period for early voting by personal appearance; or
be confined in jail, but otherwise eligible.
Suggesting that the Secretary of State (SoS) has introduced ambiguity to this list of qualified individuals is fake news promulgated by the Houston Chronicle.
Correspondence between a progressive group and the SoS published on social media reflects what was posted above. There are four groups of individuals who can apply to vote by mail.
Really, this is just Texas’ version of what’s happening across America.
Progressives are abusing a crisis to issue edicts instead of legislating. It’s disgusting and they should be shamed.
The Governor of California, Gavin Newsom was blunt about his aims:
“Coronavirus an opportunity to create a new “progressive era” “We see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”
Add to Newsom reports that South Carolina Democrat Jim Clyburn, has called the crisis an opportunity to “restructure” laws to fit Democrat aims.
For weeks, leftwing groups have been working to cajole Governor Abbott and Secretary of State Ruth Hughs.
Awkwardly, progressive groups asking Secretary Hughes to issue beneficial guidance have sued her for the same relief.
Of the types of election fraud perpetrated today, ballot harvesting and mail-in-ballot fraud is the most prevalent. Texans should oppose calls for its expansion.
