Texas voters won't be required to wear masks while voting after appeals court temporarily lets Abbott order stand

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocked a previous ruling that found the exemption to Gov. Greg Abbott’s statewide face mask mandate put a discriminatory burden on Black and Latino voters.

Voters cast their ballots at the Performing Arts Center at Texas State University in San Marcos.
