Texas Republicans Focus on Election Integrity After Rejecting Joe Biden as President

Texas GOP delegates—who last month passed a resolution rejecting Joe Biden as a legitimately elected president—adopted a sweeping new platform with a big focus on election integrity.

The Texas Republican Party released the results of its 2022 platform vote this week. Two of the measures seek fair elections free of illegal voting practices and updated voter registration rolls to combat fraud.

Among provisions for fair elections, Republicans want to limit mail-in ballots to those who can’t physically appear in person, prohibit internet voting for public office, mandate full signature verification for mail-in ballots, require voter photo ID, and deter counterfeiting by using sequential ballots.

On voter rolls, Republicans want voters to re-register if they haven’t voted in five years. Voter requirements include proof of residency, citizenship, and photo ID. They also approved compiling a list of certified deaths so the Texas Secretary of State’s office can remove deceased voters. They want to repeal all motor voter laws.

The platform reflects concerns raised in the resolution rejecting the certified results of the 2020 presidential election. In June, nearly 5,000 delegates at the Texas Republican Convention voted on the resolution and platform.

The resolution declared that the 2020 election violated the Constitution by allowing secretaries of state to circumvent their state legislatures illegally. It asserted that “substantial election fraud” had occurred in key metropolitan areas, affecting the results in five states to Biden’s favor.

Matt Rinaldi, chairman of the Republican Party of Texas, added in a statement that the Texas Republican Party was raising funds for election integrity, which is a top priority to ensure Texas never goes down the same path as Pennsylvania, Georgia, or Arizona.

“Texas Republicans rightly have no faith in the 2020 election results, and we don’t care how many times the elites tell us we have to. We refuse to let Democrats rig the elections in 2022 or 2024,” Rinaldi stated.

Democrats have long dismissed the idea of significant voter fraud swaying the outcome of the 2020 election, calling it misinformation perpetuated by former president Donald Trump in his effort to overturn a legitimate election.
