“Texas lawmakers racing against clock to pass bill aimed at curbing mail-in vote fraud”

Dallas Morning News:

Texas lawmakers are trying to implement legislation that would curb mail-in ballot fraud at nursing homes.

The House bill and its Senate companion would amend the Election Code to allow election judges to collect mail-in ballots directly from voters at nursing homes or similar facilities.

The new process would prevent political operatives from requesting mail-in ballots for unsuspecting seniors or the infirm and then returning to the facility to pick up the ballots before they reach the voter. It would also make it unnecessary for a person other than an election judge to help a nursing home resident vote.
