5th Circuit Upholds Texas Order to Limit Mail-in Ballot Drop Off Location
While you were sleeping, Texas Gov. Abbott’s controversial order to limit mail-in ballot drop off locations that had been stayed by a previous ruling has been upheld in a late night ruling.
Judge Ho's concurrence questions Abbott's authority to suspend state laws, saying that's the Legislature's job.
"It is surely just as offensive to the Constitution to rewrite Texas election law by executive fiat as it is to do so by judicial fiat. Yet that is what occurred here."
