• The 59th Legislature created the Election Law Study Committee and directed it to make a comprehensive study of the Texas Election Code toward the end of eliminating conflicts, ambiguities, and inadequacies.
Said Study Committee completed its work and reported its findings and recommendations to the 61st Legislature, and certain of the recommendations were enacted into law.
There remain certain conflicts, ambiguities, and inadequacies which need further study and revision, particularly in the area of voter registration.
