Texas 2020 Elections

Texas' ability to run accessible, efficient elections is being tested this year. Will Bexar County flunk?

While other large urban counties have aggressively pushed to expand voting options amid the pandemic, Bexar County is pursuing a more modest approach. Some critics fear the result will be an Election Day logjam disenfranchising voters of color in San Antonio.

Bexar County residents stand in the early morning rain outside the Julia Yates Semmes Library on Oct. 20, 2020. The library was one of 48 polling locations within the county, however, compared to other major cities, there was no indication of the wait times given to voters to plan for the shortest line.
