A federal judge halted Texas’ plan to limit voters to one location in each county to nullify absentee balloting in the next election. The decision says the restriction places an undue burden on elderly and disabled citizens.

The limit was imposed last week as Texas saw an increase in absentee ballots, though Most Texans are not eligible to vote this way.
