Major corporations with offices in Texas are speaking out against new legislative proposals in the state that would curb expanded voter access.
Corporate heavy hitters American Airlines, which is located in Fort Worth, and Dell Technologies, headquartered in Round Rock, were the first to criticize recent attempts to alter state election laws.
Dell Technologies CEO Michael Dell announced his company’s opposition to House Bill 6, which legislators are still in the process of approving. The bill aims to prohibit local election officials from sending out mail-in ballot applications, among other provisions.
In a tweet Thursday, Dell said, “Free, fair, equitable access to voting is the foundation of American democracy. Those rights — especially for women, communities of color — have been hard-earned.”
