I am thankful that April showers bring May flowers!
May also brings us Mothers Day. My own mother, Beverly Kinsell Danielson, was a microbiologist who worked with infectious diseases. She would have been appalled at the Texas government’s lack of concern for the health of ALL voters in Texas.
The Texas attorney general commits voter suppression by threatening prosecution of county election officials and third parties - like the League! - if they take the common sense stance that all voters currently have a "disability" that allows them to vote by mail during this pandemic. The Secretary of State describes disability as “if the voter has a sickness or physical condition that prevents the voter from appearing at the polling place on election day without a likelihood of needing personal assistance or of injuring the voter’s health”.
The League is thankful for the support of the disability community in our efforts to open vote by mail to all voters in the time of the pandemic. Please join me in giving a big thanks to Texas Disability Rights - Votes and other organizations which support our efforts to provide nonpartisan safe voting in Texas: the Texas Civil Right Project, the ACLU of Texas, Texas Impact and other voting rights advocates.
Voting is more important than ever before - share the options for voting in elections safely. Organizations, religious groups and individuals, etc. are encouraged to join us by signing up to promote the League’s nonpartisan safe voting resources in their community.
No one should have to put their lives at risk to vote.
