Nearly three quarters of Texas voters approved Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) extension of early voting by one week for last year’s general election, according to a new poll by Republican pollster Chris Perkins (Ragnar Research) conducted for Secure Democracy, an election integrity advocacy group. The additional week was supported by 91% of Democrats, 75% of independents and 58% of Republicans.

Nearly 90% of respondents supported early voting on weekends, 84% supported increasing the number of polling locations, 81% supported providing assistance to voters who need it and 62% said those providing assistance should not face the potential of felony criminal charges. Electronic mail ballot tracking was supported by 83% of respondents, and 88% supported requiring an auditable paper trail for votes cast electronically.
