“Federal court to take another look at Texas voter ID law”

10th of March 2016

Texas will get another chance to make its case for a voter ID requirement law that a panel of federal judges has previously rejected. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday that the entire court will hear Veasey vs. Abbott in an en banc hearing.

Texas’ Attorney General released a statement saying, “Today’s decision is a strong step forward in our efforts to defend the state’s Voter ID laws. Safeguarding the integrity of our elections is a primary function of state government and is essential to preserving our democratic process.”

A hearing date has not yet been set.
