|This week I published an op-ed in the San Antonio Express-News making exactly that point.
No law-abiding Texan wants an election system where even a single vote is manipulated by fraudsters.
As the Attorney General of Texas, it is my job to ensure that the laws of our state are faithfully executed.
Texas law makes clear that only those over 65, disabled, out of the county on election day and during early voting, or jailed, but otherwise eligible, may request a mail-in ballot. There are good reasons that these laws are in place.
Increased mail-in balloting increases vote fraud. I know this because my office has investigated hundreds of vote fraud cases over the years.
