TEXAS — In just a few weeks a very politically divided America will begin casting ballots in the 2020 general election.
This hasn’t been a typical election cycle as people continue to navigate the coronavirus pandemic. Health and safety are concerns at the polls, and to complicate things legal battles continue over voting rules.
In Texas, efforts to expand mail-in voting have been contested by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and other Republicans, leading to a certain amount of confusion over who qualifies.
