Senate Bill 1111 is Common Sense Election Law

Austin – In response to the ruling against Senate Bill 1111, Senator Paul Bettencourt the primary author of SB 1111 issued the following statement:


” Senate Bill 1111 is common sense election law, and I am genuinely disappointed in the ruling; I believe the Attorney General will appeal this decision to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. SB 1111 is a common-sense law from years of testimony and floor debate in the Texas Senate. In Harris County, anywhere from 5,000 to 8,000 voters are registered at private P.O. boxes as their physical address and mailing address. SB 1111 stops the use of impossible addresses for voter registration purposes, with a few exceptions. There is no one that can live inside a P.O. Box! However, the plaintiffs sued their hand-picked County Elections departments, so the Attorney General had to intervene as the State of Texas was not a defendant. I will still continue to champion clean voter roll integrity! “
