RELEASE: Texas Democrats on the Supreme Court Denying a Stay of The Texas Democratic Party’s Vote By Mail Lawsuit Before the Primary Runoff Elections

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“We are disappointed that the Supreme Court did not weigh in now and provide needed relief and clarity for voters ahead of the primary runoff.  Now, thanks to Republican Governor Greg Abbott, Attorney General Ken Paxton, and the all-Republican membership of the Texas Supreme Court, only some voters will be permitted to vote by mail during this primary election.

“The case proceeds on in other filings before the U.S. Supreme Court and the Fifth Circuit and therefore, hope remains that the federal courts will restore equal voting rights in time for the November elections.

“We will not stop fighting for the rights of voters.”
