Texas Moves to Implement Voter ID Law

With the Supreme Court suspending the mechanism that forced Texas to get a federal OK before it can implement any election law change, state Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) said that "nothing now can stop the state from activating its controversial voter ID law," the Dallas Morning News reports.

Said Abbott: "With today's decision, the State's voter ID law will take effect immediately. Redistricting maps passed by the Legislature may also take effect without approval from the federal government."

Meanwhile, WLTB-TV reports Miississippi will move ahead with its voter ID law too.
