Closing Arguments to Begin Today in Texas Voter ID Law Trial
Judges who will determine the fate of Texas’ controversial voter ID law are to hear closing arguments in the case today after both sides wrapped up testimony Thursday.
During the hearing, some experts testified that the law, which would require voters to show a valid ID, would disproportionately affect minorities. Lawyers for Texas countered that there is no evidence to make such a claim.
The Justice Department claims the new law violates the Voting Rights Act, which was designed to protect minority voting rights.
The judges expect to make a decision before November’s election.
