AUSTIN (AP) – The Texas Legislature has approved increasing criminal penalties for improper mail-in voting. The bill, now headed to Gov. Greg Abbott to be signed into law, makes some cases of mail-in voter fraud felonies punishable by lengthy jail sentences. It also increases ballot signature verification rules. Disabled Texans, those 65 or older, or people outside their home counties on Election Day can vote by mail.
