Breaking: Texas State Court Issues Order Requiring Texas to Accept Absentee Ballot Applications from Anyone Who Raises COVID-19 Pandemic as a “Disability” Preventing In-Person Voting; Appeal Expected

Ordinarily it requires an excuse for most voters to vote by absentee ballot. The Texas AG has taken the position that fear of contracting COVID-19 is not a valid excuse to vote absentee.

This court order, which was expected, says that voters may put down the disability category if they fear contracting COVID-19 and wish to vote absentee. The AG has already indicated the state will appeal, so this will go up the chain.

There’s also a separate case in federal court.
