140772078 Expert Testimony To Continue At Voter ID Trial

WASHINGTON (AP) — More expert testimony is on tap in a trial to determine whether Texas’ controversial voter ID law violates the federal Voting Rights Act.

A weeklong trial about the 2011 Texas law to require voters to present a valid, government-issued photo ID resumes Thursday with witnesses expected to include experts backing the Justice Department view. That view is that the Texas law could disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters.

The Justice Department blocked Texas’ new law in March, citing the Voting Rights Act. Texas, in turn, sued the Justice Department. That brought the case to a federal court in Washington, where a three-judge panel is to decide the fate of the law.

Testimony and arguments are set to continue through Friday.
