Texas lawmakers will debate election marshals in 2023 session


The Texas House Democrats breaking quorum in the nation’s capital host a press conference alongside Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and grassroots organizers at the United States Capitol in Washington, DC on Friday, August 6, 2021. Friday is both the anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, and the last day of the special session of the Texas Legislature. At the event, Texas House Democrats address their victory in killing the Texas Republicans’ anti-voter measures back home, and their successes in helping to move federal voter protection legislation.

Voters wait in line after 7 p.m at the Metropolitan Multi-Service Center in Houston on Nov. 8, 2022. The polling location was one of the Harris County polling locations open until 8 PM on Election Day.

State Sen. Paul Bettencourt, R-Houston, addresses his colleagues in the Senate floor on March 2, 2021.
