Abstract The issue in this case is whether Harris County Clerk Christopher Hollins (Respondent) is violating Texas Election Code § 84.012 by sending applications for mail-in ballots to over 2.37 million registered voters in Harris County regardless of whether the individual requested the application or has a “disability” under Texas Election Code § 82.002(a). Petitioners (Harris County Republican Party and two individuals) seek a writ of mandamus compelling the Harris County Clerk to send early applications to vote by mail only to individuals who request them in accordance with the Texas Election Code. See Tex. Elec. Code § 86.001. The Texas Supreme Court has original jurisdiction due to the nature of the case.
