RELEASE: The Texas Democratic Party on Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton Attempting to Get the Texas Supreme Court to Prosecute Texans Who Vote-By-Mail

Texas Democratic Party General Counsel Chad Dunn issued the following statement:

“After a month of thousands of mail in ballot requests sent by Texans who are under the age of 65, Paxton now wants to upset the election process. Apparently, none of the counties agree with Ken Paxton’s view that everybody under age 65 has to vote in person during a pandemic and the court shouldn’t either. The Legislature provided for vote-by-mail in these pandemic circumstances.

“Whether the state courts or the federal courts resolve the matter, a citizen’s right to vote will be protected.”
