17 States support Texas in Constitutional case about Election Process

Missouri’s attorney general filed an amicus motion Wednesday afternoon in support of Texas, joined by counterparts from 16 other states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia.

The 23-page motion urges the Supreme Court to hear Texas’ allegations, arguing that they are not meddling in other states’ internal affairs, just protecting the value of their own electors. They cite the risk of fraud from expanded mail balloting and the “unconstitutional encroachment” by courts and governors in violation of the Constitution, which refers to state legislatures setting the rules for choosing presidential electors.

“States have a strong interest in ensuring that the votes of their own citizens are not diluted by the unconstitutional administration of elections in other States,” they argued.

    Why aren’t all of the Republican states listed here? My state, Ohio, is missing. Why? How do I get my state added to this list?
