AG

AUSTIN—The U.S. Supreme Court today ruled that the State’s voter ID law will remain in effect for the November 2014 election. The Texas Attorney General’s office released the following statement from Lauren Bean, Deputy Communications Director:

“We are pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed that Texas’ voter ID law should remain in effect for the upcoming election. The State will continue to defend the voter ID law and remains confident that the district court’s misguided ruling will be overturned on the merits. The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that voter ID laws are a legal and sensible way to protect the integrity of elections.”
