Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“The ruling to let the nearly 127,000 drive-thru votes stand was the correct decision but it doesn’t change a simple fact: This should have never been an issue in the first place. Texans who lawfully voted at drive through locations should have never had to fear that their votes wouldn’t be counted and their voices wouldn’t be heard. This lawsuit was shameful and it should have never seen the light of day.
“Once again, Texas Republicans sought to threaten Texans’ right to vote and they lost, but this election is not over. We must send them a message and vote them out. The future of our state is entirely in our hands now.
“The only thing that matters now is voting. Texas Democrats, we must create the wave necessary to win back our state and our country. If we vote, we will win this election. Get your friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and everybody you know to make a plan to vote tomorrow at MyTexasVotes.com. This is the most important election of our lifetime. We are on the edge of history. Let’s get it done.”
