More than 7,000 people in Henderson County early voted in the 2018 primary election, including 77-year-old Grace Vaughn. Every election season, she takes her pro-life voter guide that looks just like this one. But this year she said she wasn't allowed to use it.
"She was so concerned and she told me what had happened was as far away from her teachings as you can get, and that she was going to find out who it was and that she would make sure that the matter was taken care of," Sheperd said.
According to the Texas Secretary of State's voters website, voters are allowed to bring written materials into polling places to assist them in casting their ballot. But the material can not promote a specific candidate and election judges may use their discretion in determining if the materials follow guidelines.
