Now more than ever, we need to pay attention to voter suppression occurring in the 2020 election. The state of Texas has been under the spotlight in the law few days, but these tactics have been implemented across the country.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is now facing two different federal lawsuits over his executive order to restrict ballot boxes. His order limited ballot boxes to one per county in the massive state -- the second largest in the country. This may harm vulnerable voters during the pandemic and limit voting access. It may also disproportionately impact communities of color.
COVID-19 has meant that millions of Americans -- many for the first time -- are seeking vote by mail as a safe option, but with restrictions many Americans have to navigate multiple barriers to do so. Limiting the number of ballot boxes available makes it even harder for Texans to express their voice in the 2020 election. It is a direct barrier to democratic participation.
Voting is a democratic right, and it is unlawful to put up unnecessary barriers to prevent Americans from participating in the election. Vote by mail is safe, effective, and democratic.
Sign the petition now to stop the corruption in Texas and make sure there are enough ballot boxes for Texans to safely vote by mail in their communities.
