Recently, state officials announced that a number of individuals voted in elections without the requisite citizenship, knowing the data was not yet reviewed or vetted. There is not a problem of non-citizens registering and voting in Texas — there is a data problem. Even worse, government officials purposely took advantage of that known data problem to plant doubt about the integrity of the voting system.
Voters in our democracy expect candidates to participate in voter education activities. This is a democracy, for goodness sake. Voters are more likely to vote when they know who the candidates are and where they stand on the issues.
