The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
The U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled July 20 that the Texas voter photo ID law violates the Voting Rights Act because of its racially discriminatory effects. The Court, in making its ruling, ordered the Federal District Court in Corpus Christi to find the appropriate remedy as soon as possible. For more information about the Texas photo ID law, visit the LWV-Texas website.
