How will their vote be sequestered until such time as the signature can be checked against the voter registration database?

In Texas, once you clear the front check in, you go pick up code number from a third party and that code lets you vote once electronically at one of the many machines in the room that you can choose from. There is no way to match a sworn statement to any particular ballot submission. BTW, who does the matching and how strident and consistent are the criteria?


When votes are counted the name and signature will be checked against the voter registration database. That is part of the county and state certification process.

In Texas you currently do not use a sworn statement. In the new law you need to present the sworn statement to get a ballot. The sworn statement will have your name and signature.
