One Down, Forty-Nine to Go

‘Election Integrity Is Now Law In Texas’: Abbott Signs Bill That Triggered Dem Flight To DC | The Daily Wire

The bill takes several measures to ensure integrity in casting ballots, instituting a ban on drive-through and round-the-clock voting, and adding an ID requirement for mail-in and absentee ballots.

“Those who do want to vote-by-mail must now provide their driver’s license number or the last four digits of their Social Security number when they’re applying for a mail-in ballot and when they send it back in,” the Daily Mail explained. The same measure also mandates that polling locations in areas with more than 55,000 residents offer at least 12 hours of early voting.

Personally, I would say that this doesn’t go far enough, but it’s a good start.

In a signing ceremony held Tuesday, Abbott said the bill makes “it easier than ever before for anybody to go cast a ballot. It does also, however, make sure it is harder than ever for people to cheat at the ballot box.”

“Election integrity is now law in Texas,” Abbott said before signing.

Like I said, it’s a start. Clearly better than where we were in 2020. We need many, many more laws like this.
