Court Grants Texas Temporary Stay On Mail-In Ballot Drop-Off Motion


A temporary stay from a federal appeals court will allow Texas to limit each county to a single drop-off point for mail-in ballots in November. On Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit struck down Republican Governor Greg Abbott's directive to limit drop-off boxes for security reasons, which Democrats called voter suppression. On Saturday, the Court of Appeals granted a temporary stay while the case was being appealed, meaning the governor's directive will stay in effect for now.
