Texas Republicans of Harris County argue that over 100,000 already casted-in ballots should be dismissed. Their argument is that the drive-through voting method by Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins has allowed surpasses his authority.
The U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Houston has agreed to meet with the concerned Republicans regarding the issue. The Republican State Legislator will be present.
Harris County has a population of about 4.7 million and is the third most populated county in the United States and has 10 drive-through voting locations.
More information to come.
UPDATE: District Judge rejects, saving 127,000 ballots from both parties.
