Statement by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott on the 5th Circuit’s Ruling Staying the Preliminary Injunction on New Voter Registration Laws


“This ruling is a victory for voter integrity and helps Texas prevent fraud in the voter-registration process. The partisan groups that challenged these laws were founded by and affiliated with ACORN – an organization that was notorious for voter registration fraud. With today’s ruling, the court rejected these ACORN affiliates’ attempts to circumvent election integrity laws and helped ensure that Texans can have confidence in the integrity of their elections.”
