NBC News: Federal Court Finds Texas Voter ID Law Violates Voting Rights Act
"We have repeatedly proven -- using hard facts -- that the Texas voter ID law discriminates against minority voters," said Gerald Hebert, the executive director of the Campaign Legal Center, which helped to bring the challenge to the law. "The 5th Circuit's full panel of judges now agrees, joining every other federal court that has reviewed this law. We are extremely pleased with this outcome. This law will no longer prevent eligible voters from casting a ballot this November."
