MALC joins lawsuit against Texas governor’s ballot drop-off rules

A group of Hispanic lawmakers from Texas have joined a lawsuit challenging Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s proclamation that limits each county to just one drop-off location for mail-in ballots this presidential election. The Mexican American Legislative Caucus (MALC) announced Tuesday that it has joined the lawsuit filed last week in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas by the Texas League of United Latin American Citizens, National League of United Latin American Citizens, League of Women Voters of Texas, and two voters. They claim the new rule will amount to voter suppression. In Hidalgo County, the election administrator said border voters can drop-off their ballots at their election offices in the city of Edinburg as soon as they receive them and don’t have to wait until early voting begins Oct. 13.
