Voter ID Bill
An appeals court has stayed an injunction that had blocked enforcement of parts of Texas’ new voter registration laws.
A federal court on Thursday rejected a Texas law that would require voters to present photo IDs to election officials before being allowed to cast ballots in November.
The Texas Secretary of State’s office is requesting a federal database of legal immigrants to check against voter registration records.
Closing arguments are set to begin a trial that will determine the fate of Texas’ controversial voter ID law.
More expert testimony is on tap in a trial to determine whether Texas’ controversial voter ID law violates the federal Voting Rights Act.
The U.S. Department of Justice says there is substantial evidence that Texas’ Voter ID law will discriminate against minorities.
The Justice Department’s civil rights division has objected to the new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas, saying many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification.
Attorney General Greg Abbott is asking a federal court to clear the way for the state’s Voter ID law after the Department of Justice failed to clear it.
Governor Rick Perry signed a measure Friday that requires Texans to show photo identification before voting. Republicans say the law is necessary to prevent voter fraud and make elections fair.
“My fear is that this bill is not going to increase the integrity of elections, but instead is going to keep legitimately eligible Texans from the polls.”
