In Texas, the courts are deciding if all voters will be allowed to cast their ballots by mail as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Texas Democrats sued, claiming those who fear contracting the coronavirus at the polls should have the ability to vote by mail. 

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is fighting the suit, claiming voting-by-mail for everyone would open the door for election fraud.

Regardless of the legal outcome, there is a lot more involved in the mail-in voting process. That's especially true in Texas and other states where it is not utilized fully.

Bloomberg reporter Ryan Teague Beckwith talked about the complications of mail-in voting with KRLD's Chris Sommer.
