BEHNA: UNFORTUNATE! U.S. Supreme Court Will Not Hear Texas Voter ID Case

On Monday, the Supreme Court has rejected picking up an appeal from a lower court’s ruling that struck down the requirement to show forms of ID at the voting booth.

The Hill reports from this morning.

The Supreme Court said Monday it will not hear an appeal of a lower court’s ruling striking down a Texas law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, effectively killing one of the strictest such laws in the nation.

The law, passed in 2011, required voters to show one of seven acceptable forms of photo identification at the polls, including a driver’s license, a passport, a permit to carry a concealed handgun or an election identification certificate. Voters could only obtain an election identification certificate, a form of identification provided to those who don’t have a license, if they provided a copy of their birth certificate.

Any voter without an identification would have been allowed to cast a provisional ballot, which would have counted only if they showed an identification at a county office within six days after an election.

As unfortunate as this may be for those of us who believe in showing ID to vote, there is still hope from Chief Justice John Roberts that the case will eventually be heard, according to Justice Don Willett from twitter.

This case comes down to common sense. We use forms of ID in many instances of our lives, and this shouldn’t be any different when going to vote at the voting booth.

Hopefully, it is true that the high Court will hear the case very soon.
