Judge Finds Texas Voter-ID Law Discriminatory

A Texas voter-ID law was specifically crafted to reduce minorities’ voter turnout, U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi ruled Monday. The judge had previously issued the same ruling, which an appeals court ordered her to reexamine. She issued the same ruling Monday. The Texas law requires voters to show one of seven approved forms of identification before entering the polls. The list has been criticized as targeting specific groups, allowing people to show gun registrations but not college IDs.
