The Obama administration has blocked a Texas voter ID law approved by the state in 2011. The Department of Justice or the federal courts must approve any changes to the 1965 Voting Rights Act regarding ID.
Most Hispanic politicians and federal appointees feel that Texas Hispanics will not have the same voting power as non-Hispanics. They claim that at least 300,000 registered Hispanic voters don't have any kind of government ID like a driver's license.
I wonder if this number is an accurate DOJ figure or like many Obama numbers just a WAG? I wonder if these are all legal U.S. residents? I guess that just about anyone can register to vote in Texas and then just about anyone can vote...whether it's the registered voter or not. I wonder how many Hispanic would vote (NOT ME) for Obama?
