Democrats Push Vote at Home to Combat GOP Integrity Bills

The Texas Legislature may have passed a voter integrity bill, but that isn't stopping Democrats from finding new creative ways to get out their vote.

Mayor Sylvester Turner recently attended a conference in Denver to combat what Democrats call "voter suppression" laws passed in Texas and elsewhere around the country this year.

"Even in a state like Texas that is restricting people's access, their right to vote, or making it more difficult or suppressing people's right to vote. It's how we navigate around those hurdles," Turner said during a follow up conference call Wednesday.

Houston is now stuffing voter info inside water and utility bills.

"To let them know that drive-thru voting and 24-hour voting will not be available to them, so they won't be expecting and be disappointed," he said.

"Also to let them know what their voting rights are if they're confronted by a partisan poll watcher."

That's the first Harris County GOP Chairwoman Cindy Seigel heard of that.

"I'm going to check into that because if they're pushing a particular partisan message and using city taxpayers' money, I think that is probably illegal."

Seigel says Democrats act like 24-hour voting and drop off ballot boxes under COVID have always been around.

"We know that there was fraud. The degree of fraud we don't know," she says. "The process should be fair and transparent."

"How about just inspiring voters to want to get out and vote for your candidate?"
