Texas lawyers-Opportunity to volunteer for voter protection

Here is an e-mail that I received from Chad Dunn who is the outside counsel for the Texas Democratic Party.

Dear XXXXXXX,

You are receiving this email because you previously offered assistance with Democratic voter protection efforts here in Texas. Thanks so much for your past support! I hope that I can count on you again this year.

The Texas 2018 Democratic Voter Protection Program will focus on ensuring that our voters are able to cast a ballot that is accurately counted. As Iím sure you know, Texas has a reputation for making voting difficult. From gerrymandered districts to discriminatory photo ID requirements and all means of misdirection and obfuscation in between, voting in Texas can be, for some people, like trying to run an obstacle course inside a maze.

Our Voter Protection team will need thousands of volunteers across the state to serve in various roles, such as election workers, poll watchers, hotline operators, and legal team members. If you can serve in any of these roles, it would be greatly appreciated. I can tell you first hand that being a part of the democratic process is a rewarding experience. Hopefully you can join our efforts this Fall but either way please reach out to others in your network and ask them to join this important effort.

You can sign up to be part of the team today at:

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the TX Voter Protection Director, Sondra Haltom, at 713-369-4325 or Sondra@txdemocrats.org.

I look forward to working with you in the future.
Sincerely,
Chad W. Dunn
General Counsel
Texas Democratic Party

I have worked with Sondra before and she knows her election law. I suspect that the GOP will still attempt to cheat on voter id and not tell voters about the Reasonable Impediment Declaration process where any voter who lacks one of the approved ids can still vote if such voter signs an affidavit.
