Texas Lawmakers Pushing Expansion Of Vote By Mail

A bipartisan group of Texas lawmakers is pushing for significant changes to the way we run elections. More than three dozen members of the statehouse signed on to the letter, demanding that they expand voting by mail during the coronavirus pandemic. State Rep. Philip Cortez, who co-chairs the House Committee on Elections, wants the state proactively send a mail-in ballot to all voters, whether they ask for one or not. He said counting the mail-in votes would add days on to the time it takes to crown a winner, but that’s a small price to pay. He added he is not worried about fraud.
