Texas Bullcrap

The Lonestar State is one of the few states that requires its voters to use paper forms in order to register to vote. Strange, tangible media is so twentieth century. But it is true, you can no longer register online with their new restrictive voting laws. And guess what, the Texas Secretary of State now says, "Sorry, we are out of paper."

The Texas Secretary of State’s office is having more trouble than usual getting enough voter registration cards to groups who help Texans register to vote.

Sam Taylor, assistant secretary of state for communications, said supply chain issues have made it harder and more expensive to get paper, which means the Secretary of State's office will be giving out fewer voter registration forms to groups ahead of elections this year.

“We are limited in what we can supply this year, because of the paper shortage and the cost constraints due to the price of paper and the supply of paper,” he said.

Sure you are.

Officials say 50% of applications for mail-in ballots in Travis County, Texas have been rejected as of January 13.
