Despite Democrats trying to run away from it and hide like children from their parents, Texas officially enacted new voting restrictions following the 2020 election.
Governor Greg Abbott explained, ‘It does make it easier than ever before for anybody to go cast a ballot. It does also, however, make sure it is harder than ever for people to cheat at the ballot box,’ Abbott said at the signing.
‘Election integrity is now law in Texas,’ Abbott said after he affixed his signature to the legislation.
Here’s a breakdown by Texas Tribune of some of the most significant portions of the wide-ranging legislation expected to become law. It will go into effect three months after the special legislative session, kicking in before the 2022 primary elections.
While the Democrats played hide and seek to avoid the inevitable passing of this bill, Texas Republicans stayed focus on passing it so that what happened in the 2020 election never happens again.
Now, it’s time for Republicans in other states to step up and stop pretending that the 2020 election wasn’t stolen from President Trump or Conservatives will vote them out and replace them with true Patriots that love America and will protect our election process.
