Major Changes in States' Photo ID Laws Ahead of Election

Major Changes in States' Photo ID Laws Ahead of ElectionIn Texas, a state considered by civil rights activists to have some of the most restrictive voter photo ID laws in the country, a judge agreed to a proposal that will allow citizens without sufficient photo ID to still vote with a regular ballot. Now, Texan voters who don’t have one of seven types of approved state-issued photo IDs will need to sign a declaration saying that there was a “reasonable impediment” to getting one, and then they will be able to show an alternate form of identification to cast a regular ballot. Meanwhile, a similar policy was already in place in Wisconsin, but that measure was revoked just hours after the Texas agreement was reached.
