Texas Lawmakers Pass Bill Restricting Voting Rights
Republicans in the Texas Senate have followed the House in passing, along party lines, a bill which voting rights advocates argue will unfairly restrict access to the ballot. The bill adds more identification requirements for mail-in voting, forbids unsolicited mailings of applications for mail-in ballots to eligible voters, and disallows drive-through voting and 24-hour voting. The bill has now been sent to Republican Governor Greg Abbot’s desk to be signed.
