Oppose HB 6 – Do Not Limit Voting Rights for People with Disabilities!
Relates to changes to how people are able to vote. Limits extended early voting hours, prohibits drive-thru voting and requires Texans to provide proof of disability to qualify for mail-in voting. Also allows partisan poll watchers to record voters who receive help filling out their ballots. We do not support this! House Bill 6 makes it harder for people with disabilities to vote, and disregards voter rights and equity.
