Supreme Court won’t stop Texas voter integrity law challenged by Democrats

The following is from Epoch Times.

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear a legal challenge to a Texas law that requires voters under the age of 65 to provide justification to vote by mail, meaning that the Democrat-aligned attempt to sharply expand “no-excuse” mail-in ballots in the Lone Star state has failed, with implications for other states.

According to an April 22 order list, the high court denied petition for a writ of cetriorari in a case that stems from a federal lawsuit filed in 2020 on behalf of the Texas Democratic Party and several voters who requested that Texas lift its age-based limitations on no-excuse mail-in voting.

Texas law only allows individuals to vote by mail without a qualifying excuse, like sickness, if they are 65 years or older. In their original complaint, which made its way through a number of lower courts before ending up before the Supreme Court, the petitioners alleged that the Texas voting law violates the 26th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits denying the right to vote due to age.

  1. Incidentally, last year a saleswoman from Three Day Blinds told me that a law gives people 65 and older five extra days to return their blinds.

  2. To further explain Texas voter protocol and its fairness and ease, a registered voter of any age who is mobility impaired can arrive at his/her designated polling station, call a posted phone number clearly displayed on an outside placard, and election clerks will bring the voting equipment outside to that voter. Also, the voting equipment available to any registered voter can accommodate hearing and vision impairments. For additional convenience, many Texas counties allow voters to cast ballots at any polling station within the same county of registration. Having served as an election clerk for many election cycles, unless a prospective voter is not a US citizen, he/she is permitted to vote. The ballot may be a provisional one with the requirement to return with proper ID or other details. But nearly every person can vote. Lastly, also for convenience, Texas offers early voting, two to three weeks in advance of Election Day. Distributing mail-in ballots to the masses, whether needed or not, and without specifically requesting them for good reason, entices fraud. As such, Texas continues to be quite prudent!
