The court grants temporary residence so the Texas governor’s policy for limited drop box locations can continue



The approval of the United States Court of Appeal for the fifth circuit means that Republican Abbott’s policy will remain in effect until the court examines the state’s motion for suspension.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed an urgent suspension of appeal Saturday to block a district court order that would have allowed district officials to accept postal ballot papers served in an outbuilding or satellite office in the district.

The motion aims to require eligible voters to turn their ballots over to a single bureau for early voting in order to ensure the security of the ballots, its office said in a press release.

“The district court order is undermining our electoral security, disrupting the democratic process and will only cause confusion among voters. It cannot stand,”

; Paxton said in the press release. “Mail-in ballots are particularly vulnerable to fraud. Safeguards to keep them safe must be upheld, and my office will continue to fight for safe, free and fair elections.”

The federal judge is blocking the Texas governor's policy restricting ballot boxes to one per district
Paxton’s motion comes just a day after a federal judge blocked Abbott’s order to limit ballot boxes to one per district. Lawsuits have been filed by several groups over the past week to block the policy. They claimed the move would suppress voters.

The early voting in Texas begins October 13th.
