Governor Abbott Approves Funding To Launch Election Audit Division Within Texas Secretary Of State’s Office

Governor Greg Abbott today approved a Legislative Budget Board proposal transferring the funding needed for the Texas Secretary of State’s office to establish a new Election Audit Division. This division will be conducting comprehensive forensic audits in the State of Texas. Currently, the Texas Secretary of State is conducting the largest forensic audit in the country.

The Governor requested these funds on Thursday. The Lt. Governor and Speaker issued a proposal for the transfer this morning and the Governor approved it.

“Ensuring the integrity of our elections is critical to our democracy, and the Texas Secretary of State’s office deserves the resources and support needed to thoroughly complete this ongoing task,” said Governor Abbott. “The people of Texas must have trust and confidence in the election process, as well as the outcomes of our elections, which is why the state of Texas will transfer funding needed so that the Texas Secretary of State can create a division dedicated entirely to this important issue.”
