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.
