CORPUS CHRISTI – Battleground Texas Executive Director Jenn Brown issued the following statement on today's trial over whether or not Texas’ voter ID law is discriminatory.
“Today Texas’ Voter ID law goes to trial, but no matter what the outcome of this court case, voting will still be easy, convenient and something millions of Texans will be doing this November.
“The Republicans who passed this law would like to think they can stop you from voting – but unlike them, we’re not afraid of what happens when every eligible Texan casts a ballot.
"While this battle is being fought in the courtroom, we will continue working with tens of thousands of volunteers across the state to increase electoral participation, and make sure every Texan’s vote counts this November. We’re registering voters, protecting polling places, recruiting legal observers, working to make sure voters have proper ID, and, through our statewide hotline, making sure we identify – and address – any issues that may come up as voters cast their ballots.
“We’ve already seen what happens when too few Texans cast a ballot – we get politicians more focused on protecting their insider networks than on working for the people they’re supposed to serve. It’s time for a change – and time to make sure every Texan’s voice is counted.”
