TRUE THE VOTE RESPONSE TO TEXAS, WISCONSIN VOTER ID DECISIONS

20th of July 2016

HOUSTON, TX. – July 20, 2016: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today offered reaction to recent federal court decisions impacting photo voter ID laws in Wisconsin and Texas.

“Texans and Wisconsinites can now be assured that their voter ID laws will remain largely in place this November and beyond, but there is still much work to be done,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “However, recent court actions to water down these laws will only invite more chicanery in the least. Election integrity policies alone do not prevent against voter fraud and irregularity. Our polling places must be operated and observed by Americans who understand the rules and are willing to enforce them. It’s time to step up.”

The True the Vote founder explained the growing need for new election volunteers across the nation:

“State and local election officials around the country are literally posting ‘Help Wanted’ signs to make the 2016 Election run smoothly. Whether voters have the benefit of a voter ID law enforced in their state or not, their help is needed in the polling place. True the Vote stands ready to train and facilitate the deployment of a new generation of volunteers – just as it has done in the past.”

TTV encourages concerned voters to enroll in online training today at network.truethevote.org.
