Supreme Court: Texas Can Use Voter ID Law

      The Supreme Court declared that Texas can use its controversial new voter identification law for the November election. “A majority of the justices rejected an emergency request from the Justice Department and civil rights groups to prohibit the state from requiring voters to produce certain forms of photo identification in order to cast ballots (NBC)”. The law do not accept seven forms of approved ID in a list that includes concealed handgun licenses but not college student IDs, which are accepted in other states with similar measures. From 600,000 voters, many of them black or Latino, will not be able to vote because they lack acceptable identification which could led to the feeling of discrimination towards the voters without an acceptable ID.
