Texas 2020 Elections

How Texas has made it easier and harder for people to vote in the pandemic

Voting rights groups say last-minute changes to the voting process in Texas have created confusion. Gov. Greg Abbott’s office says he has expanded accessibility by allowing voters to submit mail-in ballots in person before Election Day.

People drop off their mail-in ballots at the Bexar County Elections Department in San Antonio on Oct. 5, 2020.
