The law that would make it mandatory for a voter to bring a photo ID with them to vote was smashed by the Federal Court. This decision came from the point of view that minorities would suffer the consequences.
“Today's ruling is a victory for every Texas voter. Once again, the rule of law agrees with Democrats. The Republican voter ID law is discriminatory,” Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said in a statement.
Now the 5th circuit is sending the law back to the Corpus Christi court with the question of whether voter ID was enacted with discriminatory intent.
This year the law will be again brought up in court and the decision on wether it will pass or not will be made. Make sure to watch how it plays out, especially since we are in election season.
