The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day:  A state preliminary audit of Harris County’s running of the November 2022 shows that it was as bad as we thought. Officials ignored state law on ballot supply provisioning, election judges didn’t record critical information, and much more. And, when it came to voter registration numbers and ballot by mail numbers, Harris County had very different numbers in their records than it reported to the state. Worse, even its own numbers did not match up. Read the report here.
