There's probably a sound reason. These polling places probably were not functioning well or lacked workers. I am sure polling places will be combined. This is another Dem-O-Crap racial scare tactic...

You just making this stuff as you go along?  :shrug:

Polling places for urban voters of color would be cut under Texas Senate's version of voting bill being negotiated with House

Voters in some urban, Democratic areas of Harris and Tarrant counties would see a drastic drop in polling places under the Senate version of Senate Bill 7, a Texas Tribune analysis shows.

Texas is less than 50% White, and the Republican Party is the White party of the south.  Romney defeated Obama in the state by about 16 points.  Trump defeated Biden by around five.  Texans are getting organized like organizers did in Georgia.  If and when that happens, it could be curtains for the GOP.  Hence, we have this.

I will keep saying it.  Look at the urban areas which went democratic, especially in places like Harris County.

Just be happy that democrats were not organized enough.  Be happy that the establishment democrats are looking for those moderate republican voters while mostly ignoring their base.  Those things are helping the GOP across the nation.

"There's probably a sound reason" to make it harder for people to vote?

Republican State Legislatures Are Winning Their War On American Democracy
2021 is on pace to be the worst year for U.S. voter suppression laws since 2011, and activists are worried that Democrats aren’t responding aggressively enough.

By Travis Waldron

.....

Democratic state legislatures have pushed to expand voting rights, and Democratic leaders made major voting rights and election reform packages a top priority at the beginning of this Congress.

But the scope of Democrats’ expansive bills in state legislatures hasn’t matched the aggression of GOP efforts to curb voting rights, and neither has the Democrats’ strategy.

Key Senate Democrats — including West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema — have refused to back filibuster reform or abolition to pass the For The People Act, the sweeping election reform and voting rights legislation that passed the House in March. (On Sunday, Manchin announced his opposition to the bill and reiterated his support for the filibuster, jeopardizing additional Democratic reform efforts.) Republicans are uniformly opposed to the bill, and this insistence on bipartisanship from key Democratic players will likely kill it.

Meanwhile, GOP state lawmakers have shown no such hesitancy to use their majorities to ram through the sort of major voting restrictions and election overhauls they believe will help them win — or give them more power to overturn elections if they don’t.

But can’t state help. They are over the places.
