State Promises To Appeal Texas Voter ID Decision To Supreme Court

Texas’ Attorney General Greg Abbot issued this statement on a federal court’s decision to toss Texas’ voter ID law because it is discriminatory: 

The Supreme Court of the United States has already upheld Voter ID laws as a constitutional method of ensuring integrity at the ballot box. Today’s decision is wrong on the law and improperly prevents Texas from implementing the same type of ballot integrity safeguards that are employed by Georgia and Indiana – and were upheld by the Supreme Court. The State will appeal this decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, where we are confident we will prevail.
