Harris County asks DOJ to intervene over Texas mail-in ballot rejections

Harris County is asking the federal government to intervene after thousands of mail-in ballots and applications were rejected in the wake of a strict new voting law passed in the Texas legislature. In a letter addressed to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, county leaders pointed to an “alarmingly high number” of rejections based on new rules enacted in Senate Bill 1, which went into effect Dec. 2 and created new voter ID rules that elections administrators across the state say have tripped up voters as they seek to use mail-in and absentee ballots.
