If people lack faith in our democratic process, Texas State Senator Bryan Hughes (District 1) believes we have a real problem. When voters don’t have confidence their vote will be counted and counted accurately, it erodes participation and trust.
Senator Hughes speaks here on why reforms to protect voters are needed. He points out that victims of ballot harvesting are often vulnerable populations, like elderly voters or those who don’t speak English as their first language. Reforms that prevent ballot harvesting protect vulnerable voters from being preyed upon and help ensure every Texan’s voice is heard on Election Day.
