The Texas legislature has passed comprehensive election integrity legislation that includes voter ID provisions for mail-in ballots and voting in person. Texans, much like voters in states throughout the country, have overwhelmingly supported voter ID with over 80% supporting the requirement of voters to show identification before voting, according to polling done by the Texas Public Policy Foundation and Rasmussen.
The Texas legislation also includes provisions that safeguards voter lists, prevents the sending of mail-in ballots to voters who did not request them, and disputes ballot harvesting. It also makes the administration of elections more secure.
AMAC members in Texas were very much involved in this effort to make it easy to vote and harder to cheat by contacting their state legislators with over 17,100 messages compelling them to pass this landmark legislation. The bill has been sent to Governor Abbott to be signed into law.
