Three Texas voters, along with two nonprofits, make good on promise to file suit against the state of Texas for continued violations of the federal “motor voter” law.
SAN ANTONIO, TX––In an ongoing battle for the ability to register to vote as permitted by federal law, a group of voters and two nonprofits filed suit against the state of Texas yesterday for continuing to violate Section 5 of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), or “motor voter law.”
The plaintiffs, represented by the Texas Civil Rights Project (TCRP) and Waters & Kraus, LLP, put the state on notice last month, promising to file a lawsuit if the state failed to comply with the law. To date, the state has ignored the letter and the NVRA’s requirement that online driver license applications simultaneously register or update the voter registration for eligible users.
The Texas Tribune is covering the case.
