Posted on 06/27/2013 6:54:56 AM PDT by Perdogg
The Supreme Court has thrown out lower court rulings that blocked a Texas voter identification law and the state's political redistricting plans as discriminatory.
The court's action Thursday was a predictable result of its major ruling two days earlier that effectively ended the federal government's strict supervision of elections in Texas and other states with a history of discrimination in voting.

As usual with these ambiguous headlines regarding court rulings, I’m not sure if this is good news or not.
The article does not fully explain this ruling. Can TX require a voter ID, or not?
The rats will find other creative ways to subvert/suppress free and fair elections...
Really, does anyone respect the supremes any more.
And when are we going to “just say no”?
It is good news. The Lower Court blocked Texas’ new voter ID law, the Supremes vacated the ruling.
Of course, "Love Child", "You Can't Hurry Love", were classics.
Like in SC TX voter ID stands as the law in the state. Voter Rights Act is dead.
They can, and they've already started to implement the new process.
The transition from real Americans seeing our government as legitimate to seeing what the far left has turned it into takes time. Obama has accelerated that change, as promised, and my impression is that far fewer patriotic Americans consider the federal government legitimate than ever before. We're VERY close to just saying "no".
“Barack Obama has made his decision; now let him enforce it!”.
Hum? I must need more coffee, because I still do not know if Texas can require ID to vote.
Is the article really that unclear?
My understanding: A lower court had halted the Texas ID law on the grounds it conflicted with the Voter’s Right Act. Since the Supreme Court threw out the Voter’s Right Act (or the list of states covered by it, which resulted in the same outcome). The lower court ruling was not moot, so it was dismissed as well. Result - Voter ID law goes into effect in Texas.
The State of Texas can implement its new voter ID law.
Dems were celibrated the SCOTUS ruling to advance state sponsored perversion big time last night, but having all those red states now advance their voter ID laws at the same time is ruining it for them.
Dude..this is good news. I mean, I know it’s hard to believe, but this is. In fact, many of the rulings this week have been good. The gay marriage thing of course was awful....
It is good news...it vacates the lower court’s ruling blocking it... and now it puts other states’ foot in the door for similar laws. This is a rare bit of good news.
That’s how I read it too.
Looks like a good thing!
Greg Abbott, TX Attorney Gen., said that voter ID in TX starts today. All those Mexican citizens who vote in border towns and in the Valley will still get to vote Democrat in next year’s election if amnesty is law by then.
