Austin, TX — Tonight, a federal judge stopped Governor Greg Abbott’s unlawful attempt t0 suppress Texas voters by cutting mail-in hand delivery locations.
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Governor Abbott’s attempt to suppress Texas voters has been thwarted. Judge Pitman’s common sense order followed well-established law and stopped the governor from making up election rules after the election started. Frankly, it ought to be a shock to all of us that such a ruling is even required.
“This important ruling stands up not just for voters but for the Rule of Law. This isn’t the first time Abbott and Texas Republicans have tried to suppress the vote, and it won’t be the last. The only way to stop these voter suppression attempts is to vote for Democrats up and down the ballot in November.”
