Oppose: Senator Hughes' bill is a blatant attempt at voter suppression. It aims to make voting more difficult and less convenient for voters in Texas under the guise of “election integrity.” Besides limiting early voting times, severely impairing countywide polling, and banning drive-thru voting, it also makes it significantly more difficult for Texans with disabilities and those who need voting assistance to cast their ballot. 

Update April 12, 2021: This bill passed through the Senate and was received by the House where it was referred to the Elections committee.
