1. I am so glad I live in a state that is encouraging vote by mail.

New Mexico. While we have our own corruption issues, it is only Republicans who try to claim that there's a lot of fraud in voting.

2. Yup. Kinda hard to win when ya can't flip votes on voting machines, & shut down

voting locations in strong Democraic areas, while at the same time expanding voting locations in strong Republucan areas, When Everyone's Voting By Mail!!

"Now remember all fellow Republicans, You can't win if you don't cheat!"

3. What is not included in Texas statutes:

The risk of Covid 19 to poll workers. For the July election, the risk to voters will be the same as going to the grocery store. But the poll workers are at much higher risk. The average poll worker is about 70 years old and is going to be exposed to numerous people. (Like store cashiers) Abbott could write an executive order to expand vote by mail to protect poll workers. Instead, he gives them more hours to be exposed.

Also Paxton rewords his definition of disability to fit his narrative. The code defines disability as having a condition that could be made worse by voting. This would include many pre-existing medical conditions.

Many poll workers are not planning to show up because of Covid 19.

If poll workers don't show up then what?

Paxton also wants local election departments to be responsible for "proving disability" for voters....huh??? Where are elections departments going to get the money to screen everyone???
