TRUE THE VOTE REACTS TO 5TH CIRCUIT COURT RULING ON TEXAS VOTER ID LAW

5th of August 2015

HOUSTON, TX. -- August 5, 2015: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today reacted to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling striking down Texas’ photo voter identification law.

This ruling tells concerned citizens that an election integrity policy like voter ID can be struck down even after it has proven to not be enacted with any discriminatory intent,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “The sanctity of the vote will now break with whoever can best contrive conclusions through craftily curated datasets in the absence of current, concrete evidence.

One saving grace is that the 5th Circuit has directed all concerned to correct Texas’ voter ID law -- while respecting its original intent of preventing fraud and improving trust in our elections. True the Vote has been a leading advocate for voter ID. We will continue to work, on behalf of all Texans, for common- sense election reforms and bring voter ID back to the state.”
