Paxton Asks Supreme Court to Reinstate TX Voter ID Law

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is asking the United States Supreme Court to reinstate the recently struck down Voter ID Law.

Paxton filed his request with the High Court Friday Morning.

In a statement, Paxton said “Safeguarding the integrity of our elections is essential to preserving our democracy” adding “Voter ID laws prevent both fraud and increase the public’s confidence in our elections.”

Paxton goes on to say Texas enacted a common sense voter ID law.

The petition does not affect the upcoming November Elections–for which an interim plan has been put in place through a court order.
