Republicans Give a Lesson in Voter ID HistoryMay 25th, 2009 at 1:24 pm by Jenny Hoff under Politics
I was just handed a pamphlet of information that relates the history of the legislature’s actions when it comes voting requirements. According the text, the Legislature passed a law in 1997 requiring voters show an alternative form of identification at the polls if they don’t have their registration card (before that, there was no such requirement).
The points highlighted in this document:
- It was co-authored by a Democrat
- No one testified against the bill in committee
- The TX Democratic Party testified in favor of the bill
- The bill passed unanimously out of the Senate
