Houston Chronicle: Hey, Gen Z: Texas makes it hard for us to vote. Fight back. (Opinion)
A ruling is expected soon on a federal trial challenging Texas Senate Bill 1, the state’s 2021 sweeping election overhaul that disproportionately impacts minorities and young people like us.
In August, that federal court ruled certain provisions of SB1 unlawful, including requiring clerks to reject mail-in ballot applications and completed mail-in ballots if they did not include an identification number that matched the ID voters had used on their original voter registration application. These new requirements wreaked havoc on the 2022 elections by contributing to an unprecedented rate of rejection of mail-in ballots and applications from eligible voters.
