PILF Applauds ‘Final Victory’ in Texas Voter ID Case

(ALEXANDRIA, VA.) – September 18, 2018: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today commended Texas’ “final victory” after extensive voter ID litigation.

“Texas voters can finally rest assured their ballots will be waiting only for them on Election Day,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “While the Office of the Texas Attorney General ably handled this case to protect against classic fraud, it also helped harden defenses against external influences and threats to our elections. The ‘safety net’ memorialized in Senate Bill 5 also provides a useful example that other states can and should follow to help voters in need.

“Well-funded interest groups against voter ID should take note: rather than working to weaken our systems, expend your resources to actually help people cast ballots,” Adams added.
