Mealer’s complaint states, “Following S.B.1, election officials and the Courts are required to strictly construe the Election Code ‘to reduce the likelihood of fraud in the conduct of elections, protect the secrecy of the ballot, promote voter access, and ensure that all legally cast ballots are counted.”’ Mealer seeks a new election. “In the race for Harris County Judge, the illegal conduct of the EA calls into question the election’s fairness and whether the election met even the minimum standards for validity under the Texas Election Code,” the complaint says. “For this reason, the real result of the election is unknowable, the election should be voided and a new election ordered.” The Western Journal reached out to the Harris County elections department but had not received a response at the time of publication.
