Judge Blocks Voter Suppression In Texas

U.S. District Judge Gregg Costa blocked five provisions of the law. The law would have gotten in the way of voter registration drives:

“Under the ruling, the state may no longer require that deputy voter registrars live in Texas, a law Voting for America said prevented it from organizing voter registration drives.

“It also may not prevent deputy registrars from registering voters who live outside their county; prevent organizations from firing or promoting employees based on the number of voters registered; prevent organizations from making photocopies of completed voter registration forms for their records; or prevent deputy registrars from mailing completed applications.”
