Tarrant County [Texas] Elections Administrator Steve Raborn said Saturday that people who might find themselves unable to vote because they lack acceptable ID should cast a provisional ballot and obtain identification needed to “cure” it within six days.
Raborn's office reached out to people who might have expired driver licenses, such as those who live in nursing homes, to let them know that the license can be expired by no more than two months to be a valid photo ID for voting.
Exit polls from the 2012 election show that seniors (65 and over) voted 56% for Romney, 44% for President Obama. The same polls showed married women preferred Romney by a 53-56 margin. Guess which voters are disenfranchised by the Texas vote suppression laws - seniors and married women!
So Republicans, in their zeal to disenfranchise brown and young people, have created a voter ID law that solves a non-existent problem and subsequently disenfranchises two of their most important base groups.
We knew the GOP was stupid. This notches it up to a whole new level!
