Voting should be DIFFICULT

Voter suppression in Houston.

The Texas Supreme Court on Wednesday forbade the state’s most populous county from [to] mailing unsolicited applications for mail-in ballots to millions of registered voters ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

In a 14-page opinion, the state Supreme Court reversed lower-court rulings and held that the Democratic clerk of Harris County, which includes Houston, lacked the statutory authority to distribute unsolicited mail-in ballot applications to some two million voters.

Harris County clerk Chris Hollins said the planned mailers—which would include information about who is and isn’t eligible to vote by mail—fell under his duty to conduct early voting and would serve as a helpful guide. The state sued to block the mailings, alleging that mass mailing would confuse residents about the voting rules, and that Mr. Hollins was overstepping his authority under the Texas Election Code.

And that too many not-white people would vote.

“It is disappointing that the court has sided with political forces seeking to limit voter access this November,” said Mr. Hollins.

John Roberts brought voter suppression back from the dead.
