The notion that massive voter fraud or irregularities exist in Texas elections is perilous, racist, and lacking evidence. He asserts that the threat to Texas voters of all political stripes is not voter fraud but voter suppression. All Texans deserve a system of elections that is free, fair, and accessible. Instead, Senate Bill 1 in Texas would prohibit 24-hour and drive-thru voting, restrict early voting, and make voting more difficult for voters with disabilities or language difficulties. Additionally, it would make it more difficult for Texas judges to accommodate voters during a natural disaster or pandemic.
Texas Senate Bill 1 is a band-aid response to an issue that exists only in the damaging language of those spreading misinformation about the 2020 election. It is past time for legislators to abandon divisive falsehoods and focus on ensuring that all Texas voters have fair, equitable, and free access to the voting box.
