Conservative Governor Makes Stopping Voter Fraud Top Priority
Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) is doing all he can to ensure the election’s integrity this November in the Lone Star State.

“As we work to preserve Texans’ ability to vote during the COVID-19 pandemic, we must take extra care to strengthen ballot security protocols throughout the state,” Abbott said. “These enhanced security protocols will ensure greater transparency and will help stop attempts at illegal voting.”
Texas mail-in voters dropping off their ballots are required to present photo ID, sign a sheet and drop in their ballot contained in a sealed envelope into a designated box.
Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa ripped the governor’s decision in a statement, saying, “Governor Abbott and Texas Republicans are scared.”
(No, it looks like the CHAIR is afraid he can’t cheat as he planned.)
“Republicans are on the verge of losing, so Governor Abbott is trying to adjust the rules last minute,” Hinojosa added, saying, “Courts all over the country … have held that it is too late to change election rules.”
Seems Hinojosa hasn’t heard the latest – the Supreme Court is going to rule on this matter before the election.
