27,000 Ballots Flagged in Texas Over New Election Laws

Over 27,000 Texas primary ballots have been flagged for rejection under the state’s new election integrity law.

The Daily Wire reports:

The Associated Press reported Thursday that the flagged ballots affected both Republicans and Democrats who voted in Texas‘ first-in-the-nation primary last week, totaling approximately 17% of mail-in votes in 120 counties. The 27,000 number is an initial figure, and is expected to drop significantly. Still, AP notes that the mail ballot rejection rate will likely be far more than the rejection rate of the 2020 election, where less than 1% of mail-in ballots were rejected.

AP noted that voters were given until Monday to fix discrepancies in their ballots, which, in most cases, is simply providing identification, which is required by the law. Voters are required to list an ID number— either a driver’s license or a Social Security number which matches county records for each voter— on the ballot envelope. If a ballot is rejected upon receipt, voters can use the state’s ballot tracking system or go to the county election office to add an ID number, or they can vote using a provisional ballot on election day. County election officials told AP they worked hard to contact voters whose ballots had been rejected, with many making contact in time for them to fix the discrepancies.

A final count of rejected ballots is expected in the coming days. The Texas law requires counties to publish a “reconciliation report” after the election, which includes the total number of mail ballots and how many were flagged for rejection.

The high rejection rates were not partisan, either. Both Democratic and Republican counties struggled with high rejection rates. Harris County, Texas’ largest and home to the city of Houston, flagged more than 11,000 ballots for rejection as of March 2, but that number dropped to less than 3300 only a day later.  Williamson County, in the suburbs of Austin, rejected 521 ballots, about 11.5% of the county’s mail-in votes. The border county of El Paso rejected 725 ballots, about 16% of the mail-in vote. Parker County flagged 250 out of about 1,100 mail ballots, about 23%

They need to send cops to every address and see if the people on the fake ballots actually live at that address, if they do not flag the name in the computer so that they cannot use that name ever again to try to steal an election!

My votes will count because I will use proper procedures and complete my ballot as required, and because I am entitled to vote. These procedures are necessary to eliminate fraudulent votes and another stolen election.

Having the same thing here in WI with the 2020 vote WI is an I.D. voting state. But the voting commission changed that rule without the proper vote in the sennet to change the law for that vote.

These ballots were rejected because the voters didn’t demonstrate that they are entitled to vote. The system is working and is absolutely necessary to prevent significant and outcome changing vote fraud. My votes will be counted because I will observe the voting requirements and carefully prepare my ballot.

Voter ID, vote in person and if you can’t make it in person call and requested an absentee ballot. Absolutely NO need for the mass mailings
