The announcement followed the resignation of Texas Secretary of State John Scott, whose appointment in 2021 came under immediate criticism over his brief stint as a lawyer on former President Donald Trump's legal team.

“Voters expect fair elections with accurate, timely results, and I am committed to making that happen,” Nelson said in a statement.

Nelson is a former teacher from suburban Dallas and held a long stint as the senate's chief budget writer. The Texas secretary of state's office is still in the process of completing a limited audit of the 2020 election despite no evidence of widespread fraud.
