Federal Court Makes Terrifying Ruling That Could CHANGE the Election in November

Not good. So not good. On Wednesday, a U.S. judge settled a deal between Texas and civil rights groups on a voter identification law from last month. This particular law was ruled as discriminatory and in violation of the U.S. Voting Rights Act just last month. Now things just got worse.

A federal judge struck down portions of the law last month law and ordered the state to revamp its voter identification rules, finding that they disenfranchised minority voters.

Texas was ordered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in July to work out a fix ahead of the November general election to the law that required voters to show government-issued IDs such as a driver’s license, passport or concealed handgun license before casting a ballot.

An agreement reached between the state and plaintiffs earlier this month was approved by a U.S. district judge, lawyers for plaintiffs said.

“This is an important victory for voters,” said Myrna Pérez, deputy director of the New York University School of Law Brennan Center’s Democracy Program, which fought against the law.

Plaintiffs had argued the existing Texas law could exclude as many as 600,000 voters, mostly racial minorities such as Latinos and African-Americans and the impoverished who could not obtain the appropriate identification.

Supporters of these laws have said they are necessary to prevent voter fraud.

Texas is traditionally a Republican state, so here is hoping the affect this ruling will have on November’s results will not be too drastic.

If a registered voter does not have ID, they have to show some kind of form in its place. For example, a voter registration card, or something with their name and address on it.

Then they have to sign a declaration swearing that they had a reasonable reason for not having their ID with them.

I don’t know. After I witnessed for myself how easy it it to get in and vote even if it’s under some other voter’s name…I have zero confidence in the system.
