Texas 2022 Elections

At least 18,000 Texas mail-in votes were rejected in the first election under new GOP voting rules

In just 16 of the state’s largest counties, more than 18,000 mail-in ballots were rejected, most for failing to meet the new law’s ID requirements. A full statewide tally isn’t yet available.

Harris County election workers process election materials and prepare them for central count at the NRG Arena in Houston on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020.
