On Thursday’s show: A week after the Texas Supreme Court rejected a challenge to Harris County's drive-through voting lanes, a new petition is asking the court to reject any votes already cast that way (more than 100,000 of them, in fact). News 88.7's Elizabeth Trovall fills us in on this latest petition. Then we talk with News 88.7's Andrew Schneider about a recent study which shows it's harder to vote in Texas than anywhere else in the country.

Also this hour: We find out what the Pearland mayoral race can tell us about national politics these days.

Then, how many Texans are putting off visiting the doctor because of the pandemic?

And we hear what’s planned for this year’s all-virtual Houston Fringe Festival.
