Mail-in ballot permitted in Texas elections? - Conditions applied

Texas citizens are battling to conduct elections amid the pandemic. Initially, Fred Biery, U.S. District Judge, granted an injunction which stated that anyone in Texas who wished to vote via email to avoid the spread of coronavirus could qualify for the mail-in ballot. The following day, U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals transiently stopped this rule from taking effect. However, Texans, who generally qualify for mail-in voting, can still cast their vote in a similar way irrespective of the court's decision.

As per Five thirty-eight, 29 states permit any registered voter to request for casting a ballot via email and five countries are carrying out their voting entirely by mail. In Texas, voters who are 65 years or older, have an illness or disability or are behind bars can request for a mail-in ballot. Attorney General Ken Paxton and other Texas Republican leaders clarify that the disability code is applicable for ones who are already suffering from some sickness or physical condition and not for those who are scared of encountering a disease like COVID-19. Despite many arguments for and against these norms, but currently, these regulations are in effect.

Voters must have filled the application for the ballot by email to the early voting clerk where they are registered.

For many people casting a ballot truant, areas must get finished polling forms that aren't stamped by 7 p.m. on political decision day. Voting forms are additionally substantial on the off chance that they have got by 5 p.m the day after the election if they were stamped by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Under Texas' political decision code, an absentee voting form can be conveyed to the region assistant's office via mail or dropped off face to face upon the arrival of the political decision with a legitimate type of ID.

Large events and gatherings should be avoided till the end of the year, according to health officials

According to Austin public health officials, large gathering and significant events should be canceled for 2020, and people need to learn to live without these significant events at least for this year.


This issue was put forward in the Q&A session on Wednesday.

Interim Health Authority for Austin/Travis County, Dr. Mark Escott said that large gatherings were the first things that were turned off, and they will be the last thing to turn back on as these have a high potential to spread the infection to a massive crowd at the same time.


Escott said the mass events are a challenge, and there is no safe way to host such events before December, especially events with more than 2,500 people.


But he also said that rapid testing and effective treatment might change this. According to him, for the large events like October's ACL Fest, it is challenging to estimate anything beyond 2-3 months.

Former Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt called Abbott’s reopening procedure risky and aggressive


Sarah Eckhardt, former Travis County Judge, and Senate District 14 candidate said that Gov. Greg Abbott is showing a hurry in reopening the state, as the risk of spread of COVID-19 still prevails. She said that his measured and inclusive plan for Texas was good for both people and the economy. But the new strategy is more risky and aggressive.


Eckhardt added that pandemic had not been completely cured, and there is a need to be a bit afraid as the infection rates are increasing. She said that if the number of cases continues to grow like this, the cases "will overrun our hospital capacity if we don't continue to flatten our curve."


According to her, both economy and health are essential, and if she were in Abbott's place, she would have relied on the same metrics. But her methods would have been different.


Abbott had pointed towards continued availability of beds in the hospitals and decline in positive cases, and these facts backed his decision of reopening Texas. But last week, the state set new record in the number of new cases and deaths, and even the state misses the benchmark of 30,000 per day testing.

Presently the Austin City Council is seeing a few equals between the socioeconomics of the basic workforce and the socioeconomics of the individuals who are currently hospitalized with COVID-19.

With Texan businesses running losses amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Governor. Greg Abbott on Sunday (17th May 2020) announced the next phase of reopening businesses allowing bars, child care services across Texas to reopen this week as a messianic move to kickstart them.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler along with the Texas Democrats, in a bid to express their dismay, will address the shortcomings of the sate and the federal government.

Pointing out that Texas had its largest single-day jump in coronavirus cases ever recorded over the past weekend with 1,801 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday alone, they allege that both Governor Abbott and President Trump have not responded in a seemingly fit manner to the coronavirus crisis and claim that local leaders like Mayor Adler are the reason the crisis has not taken a turn for the worse.

From helicopters to food hunger, Texas saw it all

In 1981, helicopters were among the top sources of municipal conflict in Houston. The residents of Memorial neighborhood were angry over daily noise made by helicopters of west Houston business people as they opted to fly for their morning commutes.

Texas economy was very strong until oil prices skyrocketed by early 1980s. In 1973, oil in the United States cost $3.89 per barrel. Late that year OPEC, the cartel of mostly Middle Eastern oil-producing countries retaliated against the United States.The country was supporting Israel in the Yom Kippur War with a whopper of an oil embargo. Soon the oil supply declined and prices jumped, and the U.S. economy suffered. Oil bust engulfed the decade.

In 1981, oil priced at $31.77 per barrel. The independent oil producers of Texas saw it as an opportunity and took millions in loans to buy the equipment in order to drill out oil from Kilgore to Wichita Falls to Midland. Following that the state witnessed growth in commerce and population. Many people invested in Texas Real estate. In 1986 oil price saw a bottom hit at $12.51.

Oil prices came under control but by then oil producers were plunged deep into debt and bankers were calling in loans.

To counter that the state witnessed Super Bowl of auctions by wealthy businessmen and political leaders selling their Rolexes off to pay their mortgages. People had houses to live but did not have enough food to eat. Food banks emerged as a new institutions. Food donations got organized and food banks were created in the state's largest cities. People fought hunger together. By 1992 oil prices recovered and the state came back on track.

As of now tension between Russia and Saudi Arabia has set off a new oil bust but due to worldwide COVID-19 lockdown, oil demand is less. The COVID-19 pandemic ravaged the Texas economy. According to economists, Texas has a very bright future for the oil sector in long run and it will depend on how fast energy demand is restored.

6th street bars hold a “soft opening” in hope of soon reopening the bars to public


Many 6th street bars are hoping to get a green light to reopen their bars from Governor Greg Abbott. As they had been closed for two or more months, they organized a "soft opening" on Friday night, but they did not serve any customers.


Some bars took down the plyboards they used to close shops, and musicians played music while the employees were working to reopen the bars.


These musicians included a DJ from Library and another artist from The Blind Pig Pub. The scene gave people the hope that things will get back normal soon.


A part of the "soft opening" was that the workers would stand outside the bars as if they were open, but they did not allow customers by saying, "I'm sorry, we're not open to the public yet."


Many bar owners in 6th street expect the governor to announce the opening fo bars on Monday. As May 18 is the date for Abbot to announce about reopening of Daycare and also offices, gyms and manufacturers can open their businesses with some restrictions.


In an interview on Thursday, Governor Abbott said, "Bars bring people together; bars have to operate counter-intuitively to what they typically do. Bar owners have reached out to us, saying they can operate like restaurants where people would be sitting at a table where they can be separate from others."
