Texas Sued For Second Time Over Voter Suppression

Courthouse News reports:

Three voters and two nonprofits brought a federal complaint Tuesday that says the failure by Texas to register voters through its online driver’s license application is illegal.

The lawsuit comes eight days after a cadre of Democrats sued the Texas secretary of state on voter-suppression claims; thousands of Texans were improperly barred from voting in the 2018 midterm elections because they had registered through a third-party online portal, the Democrats say.

MOVE Texas and the League of Women Voters of Texas say the National Voter Registration Act’s “motor voter” provisions obligate Texas to allow drivers to register to vote each time they obtain, renew or update their licenses through the state’s Department of Public Safety website.
