Federal Court Strikes Down Texas Voter ID Law

A federal appeals court in Washington rejected a law in Texas that would have required voters to present a photo ID before being allowed to vote, The Associated Press reported on Thursday.

The three judges who heard the case said the law imposes “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor.”  

 

The fate of a similar South Carolina ID law – being heard by the same court -- is expected before November’s election.
