Texas where common sense reigns! Voter ID now required.

This critical law will be a BIG blow to cities like Houston that are saturated with voter fraud. Wisconsin and South Carolina are next. We will keep fighting until this is law in every state in the union

The Texas House has sent Gov. Rick Perry a bitterly debated bill that would require Texas voters to show photo identification before casting a ballot.

Monday’s 98-46 vote sends to Perry’s desk a measure he called an “emergency” item for the session. His signature will give Republicans a major victory in a bitter partisan debate that has raged for several years.

Republicans say photo identification is needed as a safeguard to prevent voter fraud.

Democrats say it will make it harder for poor and minority Texans to vote and is designed to boost Republicans margins in elections.
