The pandemic has upended all of our lives but it does not excuse the from transparency & accountability. It's been 4 MONTHS since quarantine began and the Redistricting Committees have yet to put forward a REAL plan for community input. Enough is enough.

43 organizations are demanding that the redistricting committees implement a safe method to receive public input on Redistricting! W/o public input, we can expect the new maps to racially discriminate against Black and brown communities as they have for 5 decades!

Many of the points made in this piece are the same points that inform our Criminal Injustice Reform Team's focus on divesting from police 🙅🏽 and investing in communities 🙋🏾. Take a look!

The fact that Travis County, with its robust civic engagement culture, didn't receive a single voter registration form in April is evidence that Texas urgently needs online voter registration. Especially since all Texans deserve contact-less voter registration, not just Travis.

Trump limited migrant rights & expedited deportations citing the need to limit spreading COVID-19. Yet after children test negative for the virus, they aren’t being allowed an asylum seeking process & instead are being deported.

You shouldn't need to request one again, but feel free to double-check your status with the county!

Yes, before then. The earlier you apply, the better. Your county must receive your application for a mail-in ballot by the 11th day before an election — in the case of the 11/3 election, that's 10/23. Make sure you follow up with the county if you don't receive the ballot!

You don't have to disclose your disability if you are claiming to vote by mail. But if you are found to have been fraudulent in your application for ballot by mail, it's a state jail felony.

The early voting clerk reviews the applications and makes the final call on approval. You should be able to look up who your early voting clerk is online.

Tracking mail-in ballots, no excuses needed to request voting by mail, opportunities for voters to fix errors if their ballot is rejected...this is the vote-by-mail system Texans deserve, where every possible action is taken to ensure that their votes are counted.

Our client Linda tested positive COVID-19 after the vote-by-mail application deadline for the primary runoff. This was not enough to qualify for an emergency absentee ballot under TX law. No one should have to choose between their right to vote and their own/the public's health.

THREAD Instead of welcoming and taking care of asylum-seeking children — as required by law — the Trump Administration is holding them hostage at undisclosed locations and expelling them without due process. Watch & share:
