Press Release: Texas law is clear in how elections are operated. We, the Harris County Republican Party, have filed a lawsuit today against the Harris County Democratic Party because of their blatant disregard for Texas election law. We have evidence that the Chairman of the Democratic Party in Harris County instructed his election judges to violate Texas law.
In Texas, we allow for bipartisan election workers at each polling location across the state. These positions include the election judge from one political party, the alternate judge from the opposite party, and multiple clerks who are selected by the election judge. Texas law states that the election judge MUST select one clerk from a list of names the opposite party offers. The Democratic Party in Harris County defiantly refused Republicans’ right to a clerk and also refused the Harris County Clerk when follow-up attempts were made.
In addition, we have seen the reports that many of you saw on Townhall.com, the Drudge Report, and local media regarding events at the Acres Homes polling location on Friday and the inappropriate behavior by the NAACP. Any means of pushing a candidate or issue within the boundaries of the polling site violates Texas law. It is a well-known and enforced law; therefore, there is little excuse for the NAACP regarding this behavior. Harris County has measures in place to assist voters who have difficulty standing and the NAACP should not cherry-pick which voters deserve to go first. Harris County runs the election process, not the NAACP. If the NAACP plans to have people around the polls, they should properly train them on what is legal and appropriate behavior just as the rest of us do with our workers. We urge the County Attorney Vince Ryan (D) to take appropriate action.
The Harris County Republican Party is closely monitoring the elections and taking appropriate actions regarding each issue that arises. We will have a team of skilled attorneys to respond to issues throughout Tuesday with a dedicated Hotline: 877-854-1344 and at the state level (254) 300-VOTE(8683)
