There have been several challenges to voting laws and procedures in the months leading up to the November 2020 election.
Governor Abbott's Executive Order requiring face coverings in many public places [PDF] specifically does not require individuals to wear a face covering while voting, working as a poll watcher, assisting a voter, or administering an election. There is an ongoing lawsuit challenging this. If the lawsuit succeeds before election day (Nov. 3rd), Texans may need to wear a face covering while at a polling place. Below is information about the ongoing lawsuit. Please check news outlets for up-to-date information as election day approaches.
