According to Colleen M. Vera:
Unlike some other states, Texas does not require photocopies of ID to accompany the ballot by mail application. The only “security” Texas statute has in place for ballots by mail is a comparison of the voter’s signature on the application to the voter’s signature on the ballot envelope. Previous signatures going back 6 years may be compared if needed. If the signatures could have been written by the same person, the ballot is approved.
After reviewing all the applications from Dutton’s race, I have concerns that Texas needs much more ACTUAL SECURITY for our mail ballot system. Signature comparison isn't enough. - especially now that voters over 65 are receiving pre-printed applications for ballots by mail from the parties, candidates, and PACs. The only information the voter supplies is a signature - so that is all that can be compared.
In reviewing the pre-printed postcard applications from Dutton's race, we found numerous voters whose first or last names were the same as another voter, and their signatures were remarkably similar."
Some examples of signatures on applications for ballots by mail from TWO or MORE DIFFERENT VOTERS:
HANDWRITING SAMPLE "A"
What you are looking at below in "SAMPLE A" is the same (EXACT HANDWRITING) on multiple ballots by mail applications from precinct #259 (Deborah Adams' Precinct) from every year going back to 2008. Remember, that Harris County Precinct Chair and Judge for Precinct 259 is Deborah Adams who is presumed to be innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
HANDWRITING SAMPLE "B"
What you are looking at below in "SAMPLE B" is the same (EXACT HANDWRITING) on believed to be that of Deborah Adams, a Harris County Democratic Party Chair and Precinct Judge from precinct #259 from an Affidavit for a Provisional Voter ballot from Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Remember, that Harris County Precinct Chair and Judge for Precinct 259 is Deborah Adams who is presumed to be innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
