Texas Attorney General Abbott Tells International Election Observers to Abide by Texas Election Laws

 Via Cousin Bill

Greg Abbott

Elections and election observation are regulated by state law. The Texas Election Code governs anyone who participates in Texas elections—including representatives of the OSCE. The OSCE’s representatives are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place. It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance. Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.


  1. I sent the Texas AG letter to Florida AG Bondi. Will let you know if I ever hear anything.
