Abbott extends early voting

Tuesday, July 28, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

While it does not appear that the state is loosening its requirements for mail-in ballots, a proclamation from Gov. Greg Abbott has extended early voting for the Nov. 3 election. The proclamation will allow early voting to begin Tuesday, Oct. 13, and continue through Friday, Oct. 30. “As we respond to Covid-19, the State of Texas is focused on strategies that preserve Texans’ ability to vote in a way that also mitigates the spread of the virus,” Abbott said in a press release. “By extending the early voting period and expanding the period in which mail-in ballots can be hand-delivered, Texans will have greater flexibility to cast their ballots, while at the same time protecting themselves and others from Covid-19.”
