VOTE: Best Coaches In American Sports

GALVESTON (AP) - A federal judge in Galveston is to consider motions in a lawsuit filed by a Washington-based voters’ rights group that contends Texas laws make it illegally difficult to register voters.

The group Voting for America is seeking an injunction to block enforcement of laws they say keep registration records from the public, attack voter registration drives and impede its “mission of voter advocacy.”

State lawyers deny anything improper and say the organization has met none of the requirements for obtaining an injunction. They also argue that the group wants to process voter registrations it collects with no state oversight and risk no penalty if ineligible citizens become registered voters.

The hearing set for Monday afternoon is before U.S. District Judge Gregg Costa.
