This is the 3rd time that SCOTUS has denied hearing similar cases from Texas — and another from Indiana.The 5th Circuit Court in Texas.  The case began in 2020 when the plaintiff argued that mail-in ballots could spread the virus. Having declined to hear the case, the Texas mail-in voting restrictions will remain the law of the land:

    • Age 65 years or older
    • Sick or disabled
    • Out of the country on Election Day and during the period for early in-person voting
    • Expected to give birth within three weeks before or after Election Day
    • Confined in jail, but otherwise eligible to vote

Seven states have restrictions on who under age 65 may vote by mail: Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
