Those that want to make it so a state has vote by mail, needs to work through the system, not create fake ways of doing it.
“We agree with the State that a voter’s lack of immunity to COVID-19, without more, is not a ‘disability’ as defined by the Election Code. But the State acknowledges that election officials have no responsibility to question or investigate a ballot application that is valid on its face,” the opinion delivered by Chief Justice Nathan Hecht said.
Good rulling in my opinion. Not haveing immunity to COVID-19 is not a disability.
Meanwhile a federal court just last week ruled that Texas voters afraid of catching the novel coronavirus can request absentee mail-in ballots due to the pandemic. That decision was appealed by Paxton as well, and was temporarily halted pending the decision of a federal appeals court.
The challenge to the vote by mail for anyone has been on a dual track state and federal court. With the state ruling, the federal court should look to that and rule the same. It doesn’t meet the states definition of disability.
