Remember The Voter Suppression Act When You Go To The Polls & Take Photo I.D.

In what I guess was an effort not to mix things up too close to election time, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Saturday that the Texas Voter ID law that was struck down will remain in effect for this election since it is so close.

According to, here is an acceptable list of IDs under the law:

  • Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
  • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
  • United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
  • United States passport.

Note how gun licenses work, but student IDs issued by state universities do not.  Yeah, that was not an attempt to keep certain groups from voting at all, was it?  Naaahhh.

Be prepared and make sure your vote counts, Mamas!
