8. Court rejects Greg Abbott's motion to delay voter id trial

As noted above, the court set the trial date for Sept 2, 2013 and Greg Abbott moved to have the trial delayed until after the 2014 elections. The Corpus Christi federal district trial judge rejected Greg's motion http://txredistricting.org/post/67782988342/court-rejects-state-of-texas-request-to-move-voter-id

After a hearing this morning, Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos rejected the State of Texas’ request to move the start of trial in the voter ID case from September 2, 2014 to March 2015.

The September trial date leaves open the possibility that a ruling on the law could come in time to impact procedures in the November 2014 general election.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott had pushed for a later trial date on the grounds that changes to the law would be difficult to implement after mid-August and could result in voter confusion.


I am hopeful that the court will rule on the Texas voter id/voter suppression law prior to the 2014 election.
