Did Texas Democratic Party engage in voter fraud?

Absentee ballots mailed with citizenship box already marked

The Texas Democratic Party is accused of attempting to register non-citizens to vote in the upcoming November elections, according to multiple complaints filed with the US Department of Justice, the Texas secretary of state, and local Texas district attorneys.

According to The Washington Times, the Public Interest Legal Foundation filed one of the complaints on Thursday, alleging that

“The Texas Democratic Party asked non-citizens to register to vote, sending out applications to immigrants with the box citizenship already checked ‘Yes’ “.

The return address on those applications was apparently the same as the headquarters for the Texas Democratic Party. PILF spokesman Logan Churchwell stated

“This is how the Texas Democratic Party is inviting foreign influence in an election in a federal election cycle.”

The Times verified that

“The Texas secretary of state’s office said it, too, had gotten complaints both from immigrants and from relatives of dead people who said they got mailings asking them to register. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott vowed to investigate. ‘If true there will be serious consequences,’ he said.”

A spokesman for the secretary of state’s office indicated that they’d received multiple complaints of requests for deceased relatives to register – many of whom have been dead for more than a decade.

This isn’t the first claim of attempted voter fraud in Texas during the current election cycle; just last week, four women were indicted for casting fraudulent votes in the names of at least 26 elderly Texas residents.

Last month, a Houston woman was convicted of voting under a relative’s name, and in March a Texas woman still serving sentence for a previous felony was convicted of voting illegally. Texas law stipulates that convicted felons cannot vote until sentences are completed.

In June, the results of a Democratic runoff for a justice of the peace seat were thrown out and another election ordered after the legality of at least seven ballots was questioned in a race that had been decided by only six votes.
