Republican State Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking to stay in the lead in an attempt to block the Mail’s voting effort.
The Supreme Court’s order halts the distribution of postal votes to those who fear it may be affected by voting in the polls, at least until Paxton’s appeal is heard this weekend.
“I am pleased that the Texas Supreme Court has confirmed that my office can continue to pursue voter fraud and provide guidance on the mail-in ballot,” Paxton said in a statement.
Paxton’s appeal is scheduled to be heard Wednesday.
Two lower courts have previously supported the mail-in effort.
Under state law, Texas allows residents over the age of 65 to vote by mail, and any disabled voter, members of the military service and residents outside the city for election.
Democratic leaders in the state have punished state officials for trying to force voters into harm’s way.
“I am shocked, frankly, that the state of Texas, even today, is struggling with dentists and nails to try to make grandmothers a place where so many people are suffering. [who are] 64-year-old goes live and vote, ”Democratic lawyer Chad Dunn said in the study.
“Couldn’t be more surprised.”
Proponents of the postal movement are making the legal argument that the risk of catching the corona virus should be considered a flaw under the law.
“This effort to make the choice between Paxton and the rest of the Republicans exercising their right to vote and the right to life is an insult to all that this democracy stands for,” state Democratic leader Gilberto Hinojosa told the store.
