There is some limited in-person voter fraud, and the laws are significant and adequate to deal with them and does deal with them. Where there is some legitimate voter fraud is mail-in ballots, but the perception here in Texas is that white citizens, the political perception here in Texas, is that white citizens avail themselves of the mail-in ballot than do other citizens of color. So our legislature has at least thus far chosen to not do anything about that type of voter fraud. And instead has chased the boogeyman under the bed so to speak, on these limited circumstances of in-person voter fraud.
