DOJ Sends SOS Final Notice on Voter ID
November 17th, 2011
Austin—The Department of Justice (DOJ) yesterday sent a final notice letter to the Secretary of State’s office on the photo voter identification legislation. TDP spokesperson Rebecca Acuña released the following statement:
“The Republican Party has fabricated this voter impersonation myth to implement policies meant to disenfranchise specific voters.
The Republican voter suppression legislation was unquestionably created to keep certain people from voting. In fact, the limited data that the state has furnished shows that Hispanic voters would be disproportionately disenfranchised. It’s clear that the DOJ’s patience is running out.”
Talking Points Memo has posted a copy of the letter, which you can read here.
