Governor Abbott Signs Voter Integrity Bill Into Law In Texas

On Tuesday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday signed a voter integrity bill into law that bans 24-hour and drive-thru voting and imposes other restrictions on voting.

This makes Texas the latest in a number of other Republican-controlled states that have implemented tougher voting laws after the chaotic 2020 election that saw wide changes to voting procedures.

Gov. Abbott: New Law Will Make It ‘Harder Than Ever For People To Cheat At The Ballot Box’

Abbott praised the bill, which was hard fought to get through the legislature.

When the legislation came up, many Texas Democrats fled the the state for Washington, DC. 

Abbott said of the new legislation during the signing, “It does make it easier than ever before for anybody to go cast a ballot.”

But he added, “It does also, however, make sure it is harder than ever for people to cheat at the ballot box.”

Left-wing critics have attacked the legislation, saying it will disproportionately harm racial minorities and those with disabilities.

What Does The Bill Do?

CNN reported, “The new law takes aim at Harris County, the home of Houston, which last year offered drive-thru voting and 24-hour early voting. The bill restricts the hours counties can offer early voting to between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.”

“And it prohibits tactics like the ones Harris County used in 2020, when a garage at the Toyota Center — the home of the NBA’s Houston Rockets — was among the venues used as a place residents could vote from their vehicles,” the cable news outlet added.

But that’s not all that’s in the bill.

“The bill also blocks counties from sending unsolicited mail-in voting applications — even to those who are over age 65 and therefore qualify automatically to vote by mail,” CNN noted.

CNN tweeted a few of the provisions of the bill, and social media users seem onboard with the changes.
