TX governor shutters drop-off locations for people voting by mail

Gov. Greg Abbott Thursday threw the weight of his office behind Republican efforts to limit options for Texas voters who want to hand-deliver their completed absentee ballots for the November election — a rebuke to some large, Democratic counties that have set up multiple dropoff locations in what they call an effort to maximize voter convenience. The Republican governor issued a proclamation directing counties to designate just one location for ballot dropoffs, and allowing political parties to install poll watchers to observe the process.
