Texas Supreme Court denies GOP-led petition seeking to invalidate 120,000 votes in Houston area


This is the second time in recent weeks the state Supreme Court has blocked attempts to dismantle drive-thru voting there. The petition argued that drive-thru voting violated federal law.

A similar court case is pending at a federal court in Houston with a hearing set for Monday.

Ten of Harris County’s 120 early voting sites are drive-thru locations. As of Friday, nearly 127,000 votes had been cast at those sites, marking nearly 9% of the total votes cast in the country’s third most populous county.

While curbside voting in Harris County is limited to voters with a disability and located at all polling sites, the drive-thru voting locations are open to all voters.
