Tale of two states: Texas fought challenges to voting law while Georgia settled

Georgia's surprise tilt to Joe Biden this year—the first time the state went for a Democrat presidential candidate in nearly 30 years—followed after officials made numerous concessions to election activists over the last several years, including allowing voting documents with errors on them to be processed instead of rejected. 

Texas, meanwhile, remained red despite some media prognostications it would flip Democrat after state officials there mounted a tenacious defense of its existing voting system. 

2020 literally provided a tale of two traditionally red states with two very different outcomes.

In three separate instances over the last several years, Georgia settled with voting activists regarding their demanded changes to the state's voting code, electing to end the suits on negotiated terms rather than fighting them to the highest courts possible.
