TX Senate passes landmark voting integrity measure

The Texas State Senate passed S.B. 7 on Thursday to ensure voter integrity, a decision State Sen. Bryan Hughes (R) says will make it “easy to vote and hard to cheat.”

“At the end of the day, the Texas Senate passed a strong election integrity bill that we can be proud of,” Hughes said in the Twitter video. “It heads over to the House now for more work, and election integrity bills continue to move through the process.”

An early version of the bill addressed the topics of drive-thru early voting and voting by mail. The bill follows similar changes in voting laws made by Georgia in March.

Many Democrats have argued such changes are an effort to suppress votes, especially among communities of color. Texas State Sen. Borris Miles (D) said, “There are some things in here that are really offensive. This hurts to the core.”

Democrats have attacked Georgia’s voting rights bill, for example, as a new Jim Crow 2.0. President Joe Biden has even supported efforts to remove the Major League Baseball All-Star game from Georgia as a result of the legislation.

Republicans have viewed voter integrity changes as necessary following concerns during the 2020 election. In addition, the For the People Act (H.R. 1) has led conservative states like Texas to develop their own measures.

The Heritage Foundation has noted the bill would, “Seize the authority of states to regulate voter registration and the voting process by forcing states to implement early voting, automatic voter registration, same-day registration, online voter registration, and no-fault absentee balloting.”

Voter rights will continue to remain a heated battle as the nation heads toward the midterm election in 2022. Both Republicans and Democrats will fight for any advantage as conservatives seek to retake power in the House and possibly the Senate to oppose Biden’s radical progressive agenda.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

You’re a liar and a thief. You know it, everyone here knows it and for you to be the first post on this site every time means this publication is in on it too. I’m going to have a great day today because I wake up every morning and thank GOD for another beautiful day. I can look myself in the mirror and smile because I slept well and woke up the same good lookin’ old guy that I see EVERY morning. I doubt you slept this well because you are always wondering WHO or what is going to catch up with you today and when you do look in the mirror, you see you. Good luck getting right with GOD, I pray you do.

I truly hope your right but just about everyone is hooked on Facebook, Twitter, their little cell phones, closing down shopping centers because of Amazon. I am old enough to remember when we didn’t have all of this. As a kid, a young teen you always made sure you had coins for the phone booth. But now, all of these things are exactly like drugs and ALL OF THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS ARE HOOKED!!!

Lol, I remember that the big thing too do as a teenager was to hang out at the mall. Go to the food court and just hang out and talk but now you see these younger people in restaurants and most are on their cell phones, not talking to each other and even the very young children are on something playing games. Many of the younger people today feel uncomfortable looking into someone’s eyes and talk. They would rather text.

I,remember there were no malls. Just Orchards and bean field’s smudge pots in the winter. AND the wonderful SMELL of ORANGE BLOSSOMS IN SPRING. AS A CHILD I WAS LUCKEST PERSON ON THE EARTH. I HAD AN IDENTICAL TWIN BROTHER. HE WAS MY BUDDY THEN AND IS NOW. ALWAYS IMAGINING AND GOING THINGS TOGETHER.

Until all states require a government issued ID to vote we will have cheating. When a person goes to the doctor they are required to have a government issued ID. Several DL renewals ago my social security number was removed as my DL number. When I updated my voter registration in Georgia we were required to list our DL number on the voter registration. The reason for that is so the Democrats can no longer have the people in the cemetery to continue voting twenty or more years after they died.

Not forget to mention states are issuing dl’s to non citizen immigrants so there needs to be words to the effect of “not issued for voting “ on drivers licenses issued to non citizens!

What is the problem is that this is an issue. You can’t do anything without an id. Cash checks, drive a car, court rooms etc. If no id needed to vote get rid of them all together. Anyone can cash your check then. All the hail with king biden

GREAT! ALL WE EVER SHOULD WANT IS A FAIR ELECTION! IF IT IS FAIR AND WE LOSE OK!! IF IT IS STOLEN AND “YOU CAN PROVE IT BEYOND DOUBT” THEN THIS IS TREASON AND DEATH SHOULD BE THE SENTENCE! I THINK IF THIS IS THE CASE A LOT OF PEOPLE “SHOULD” DIE!! WE WILL SEE! WE SHOULD “NEVER ALLOW OUR CHILDREN TO THINK THAT CHEATING AND GETTING BY WITH IT IS REWARDED! BACK IN THE LATE 1800’S THEY USED TO ,AFTER CHURCH, TAKE THE KIDS AND A PICNIC BASKET TO THE COURT YARD TO WATCH HANGINGS TO SHOW THEIR KIDS CRIME {MURDER,RAPE, CHILD MOLESTATION} HAS ITS PENALTY! IF THE PENALTY IS SEVERE ENOUGH YOU CAN STOP ANYTHING OR AT THE VERY LEAST SLOW IT DOWN A LOT!! 1 OF 74,000,000 PLUS AMERICAN PATRIOTS!

Democrats will fight to the end to allow illegals to vote. They are fighting so that voter fraud be allowed and accepted. They won the election with fraud, cheating, and intimidation. They know it, we know it, and the entire world knows it. We are now know as the country that Biden bought. The world can’t keep from laughing.

Why do fair elections insult Texas Senator Borris Miles and other Democratic senators so much, even to the core? I think that unlike Texas Senator Borris Miles, communities of color are made up of honest and reasonable people who want fair and not falsified elections. It’s just that Texas State Senator Borris Miles et al., Not very honest Democratic senators, never consulted with these honest people from these communities of color.

Good for Texas! Now the rest of the states need to follow suit! If Piglosi can push HER HR1 bill through, we will NEVER have another fair election! The senate must vote it down, states are supposed to have their own laws, but the demonrat run ones want lax voting laws so they can cheat. Call your legislators, ask them to vote against HR1!

One vote for everyone who qualifies. That means you DON’T get to vote in more than one state, you have to be breathing and above ground, you have to have an ID to prove you are who you say you are and no mail-in-ballot without a valid reason!!!

Great! But no surprise – it is the Texas Border that is crossed and abused most. It is also obvious that Texas has (or perhaps “HAD’ – until we allowed all those California Liberals also Invade, the most Common Sense of all the our Once-United-States. But this vote is a great sign that we’re ‘Gittin-Er-Back.’ It wuz’ gittin’ ta’ hurt seein’ her bein’ messed-with so much. Now we Texans – whether Bred-and-Born or Sneaked-and-Snucked-In, – make sure we get that ‘Congress-Correction-Consummation-Completion’ taken care these next few elections. It seems like the entire world is hoping the same for us – except for the ‘Dummercrats.’

Especially PA, which is one of the swing states that was totally illegal. And Gov. Wolf should be impeached for allow this. He is a criminal in the worst way. Let’s not watch the MLB this season, nor should we fly the friendly sky’s. As the are no friendly and also quite buying Coke products. I will not support any of these, because they decided to follow MLB in the GA new law.

Way to go, Texas. Make it as difficult to vote as possible. The UnAmerican Digest agrees – the fewer voters the better. Its boy Donald would have liked just enough fewer votes in Georgia, recall? But Republicans with personal integrity refused his request and threats.
