Federal Court: Voter ID laws impose “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor”

A Federal Court in Washington DC ruled today that the Texas voter ID law that requires voters to present a photo ID imposes “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor”.

We presume that requirements to show your ID will no longer be permissible at airports, at bars, at banks, at passport offices, at liquor stores,  at state licensing bureaus, when buying cigarettes, when buying cold medicine, when enrolling in a university or college or starting a business.  In short, no one will no longer be able to ask for IDs to verify identity or age.
