Governor Greg Abbott faces lawsuit

HOUSTON, TX – Republican Governor Greg Abbott is now facing a lawsuit over his decision to extend the early voting period for the upcoming November election.

In the lawsuit filed Wednesday with the state supreme court, Abbott is being sued for adding an additional six days to the early voting period, now set to begin October 13.

Abbott says he decided on the early voting extension in an attempt to give voters more time to cast a ballot in a way that does not contribute to the spread of the coronavirus.

The plaintiffs are arguing that Abbott defied the law that requires early voting to start on the 17th day prior to the election.

Jared Woodfill, lawyer of the plaintiffs spoke on Abbott’s decision:  “Governor Abbott seems to have forgotten that the Texas Constitution is not a document that he consults at his convenience.”

Abbot’s office has not released a statement regarding the lawsuit.
