Federal judge again throws out Texas voter ID law

Federal judge again throws out Texas voter ID law | 23 Aug 2017 | A federal judge Wednesday rejected Texas' revised voter identification requirements, handing another court defeat to the state's Republicans over voting rights. Texas has spent years fighting to preserve both the voter ID law -- which was among the strictest in the U.S. -- and voting maps that were both passed by GOP-controlled Legislature in 2011. Earlier this month, a separate federal court earlier found racial gerrymandering in Texas's congressional maps and ordered two of the state's 36 voting districts to be partially redrawn before the 2018 elections.
