Election 2020 Voting Texas

With an election official looking on, a senior citizen uses the drive-thru option to vote Oct. 13 outside Richardson City Hall during early voting in Richardson.

The mass exodus of Texas House Democrats shouldn’t surprise anyone who has paid the least bit of attention to the machinations surrounding efforts to further restrict voting availability in Texas. It is a tactic used before by Texas legislators — and lawmakers of both parties in other states.

In the end, it will prove to be nothing but political theater based on a tired partisan plot.

One thing is certain. Voter integrity is a major concern after the fraudulent 2020 election.

Drive through voting needs to be eliminated unless they can verify one vote one person. We must have voter ID Dems are fighting this But every nation in the world requires this. They want open avenues to cheat. We saw many indictments last election in Texas

Let’s be clear about Washington bill. Feds will take over elections. States will lose their constitutional rights Also dems won’t to repeal an injunction and law where the Obama / Holder administration were using IRS as a political tool to prevent Conservatives, Religious and the Tea Party from approval for political status whereas they approved liberal groups. Judges ruled for groups and IRS was guilty Dems want to go back to use it as a political tool

Dems are costing taxpayers 43K a day

Who paid for their travel and expenses? I will contact my representative and ask to deny any taxpayers money. Let’s these cry babies use their own

I keep reading articles (front page today) from The Texas Tribune stating the proposed voting integrity bill will "restrict voting rights". How will it restrict someone's right to vote? Every legal voter still has the same rights. I should think Mr. Morris and his trusty "staff" comment button would correct these so called journalist. So silly. Yes, we all knew the cowardice liberals would run to Washington and ask the Federal sugar daddy for help. Running from a fight is not very Texan like. And they wonder why they can't win a state wide election or make any headway in the Texas House and Senate.

Record voter turnout and the Republicans get scared and again change the playing field. Speaking of cowards.

Father of Six

Not record turnout in Texas. It wouldn't matter for the cowardice democrats here anyway. Have you considered moving to a blue state?

natives5

Why should I consider moving? Texas will be blue soon enough, thank goodness.

Facts really don’t matter to you do they? Voter turnout was a record high throughout the country including TX. .

Father of Six

1988 and 1992 had bigger turnout. Does that make you a liar or ignorant?

Father of Six

Sorry that was mean...but accurate.

PJBM626

Voter turnout was high and Repubs gained seats in Texas. Texas won’t go blue. Hispanics are switching to Repubs at a good enough % it’s going to be real hard for dems to win. This is why dems want to be able to ballot harvesting like they got caught last election

You are correct about 1992. Perhaps I should have added the caveat of “in the past 30 years” to make it clearer for you. Don’t worry about an apology, I expect futile attempts at insults from you.
