HOUSTON – The Texas Supreme Court ruled Thursday that drive-thru voting can proceed in Harris County.

The court denied a request by Republicans for an emergency motion aimed at stopping people from casting their ballots from their vehicles.

Justice John Phillip Devine delivered a dissent.

Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins said in a statement posted on Twitter that he is happy with the result and he hopes this means that drive-thru voting will be available to Harris County voters in the future.
