The Texas Supreme Court gave a stay Friday night to keep area political decision authorities from permitting voters who fear getting coronavirus to cast a ballot via mail.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton requested that the court step in Wednesday, contending that political decision authorities are “twisting” the state’s “inability” necessity for truant mail-in casting a ballot in the midst of the pandemic.
Paxton, a Republican, documented a request for Dallas, Cameron, El Paso, Harris and Travis regions.
The court will hear the case on May 20.
The following political decision date in Texas is July 14 for an essential overflow political race. The most recent day to apply for a mail-in polling form is July 2.
