An investigation into potential voter fraud in Texas indicates that several hundred Texans may have voted improperly.
The issue at hand revolves around a temporary ruling of an ongoing court battle in Texas that allows someone unable to acquire valid ID to sign an affidavit instead, thus allowing them to exercise their right to vote. However, it appears that hundreds of people may have abused the system, signing an affidavit instead of showing a valid ID which would be in their possession.
Texas boasts about having one of the more stringent sets of laws governing voter fraud, and there are seven valid forms of photo ID which can be used to vote, yet not everyone in possession of one of these forms chose to use it.
“The chief election officers in two of the state’s largest counties are now considering whether to refer cases to local prosecutors for potential perjury charges or violations of election law. Officials in many other areas say they will simply let the mistakes go, citing widespread confusion among poll workers and voters,” according to ABC 13.
