Statement by Gov. Perry on Court’s Decision to Deny Texas Voter ID Law

Thursday, August 30, 2012  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement regarding the U.S. District Court's ruling denying Texas' voter ID law:

"Chalk up another victory for fraud. Federal judges subverted the will of the people of Texas and undermined our effort to ensure fair and accurate elections. The Obama Administration's claim that it's a burden to present a photo ID to vote simply defies common sense. I will continue to work with Attorney General Abbott to fight for the same right that other states already have to protect their elections."
