The voting process in Texas demands the highest level of accountability. By eliminating the option of straight-ticket voting, we are upholding the integrity of our elections and placing responsibility back into the capable hands of our voters.
Texans and all Americans are accustomed to presenting valid identification in many places to gain access – in airports, hotels, offices, government buildings, etc. The voting process is no less important than any of these and should have the same safeguards to ensure a fair outcome in every election.
Texas House Republicans took necessary steps to protect Texas voters’ fundamental right to vote by cracking down on those who knowingly and intentionally deceive, mislead, or misinform voters that use mail-in ballots.
