    Supreme Court’s Decision Day: Texas Vote-By-Mail Restrictions Revealed!

    The U.S. Supreme Court has turned down a challenge to Texas voting rules that let seniors automatically vote by mail but not younger people.

    In Texas, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee, older voters can ask for an absentee ballot for any reason. In other states, older voters can only do this in certain situations.

    Just as it rejected a similar challenge to Indiana’s voting laws in 2021, the court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from three Texas voters. Additionally, it twice declined to hear earlier versions of the Texas lawsuit that the Texas Democratic Party had filed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The challengers argued that the 26th Amendment forbids age-based discrimination, which is what the unequal treatment of voters amounts to, USA Today reported.
