WASHINGTON (AP) - A trial looking at whether a recently passed Texas voter ID law violates the federal Voting Rights Act continues with Texas calling witnesses to support its case.

Trial continues Tuesday in federal court in Washington, D.C., as the state argues the law doesn’t disproportionately affect minority voters and should be allowed. Lawyers for Texas hope to a three-judge panel that the law — which requires all voters in Texas to show photo identification at the polls — doesn’t violate the federal law.

The Justice Department and several outside groups contend the law is discriminatory and should be thrown out under the Voting Rights Act passed in 1965 as a safeguard for minority voting rights.
