Fifth Circuit Will Hear Oral Arguments in Texas Voter Registration Case on September 6

The U.S. Court of Appeals, 5th circuit, will hold oral arguments in Voting for America v Andrade, 12-40914, on Thursday, September 6, in New Orleans. This is the case over whether certain Texas voter registration drive restrictions should remain in place while the case is being decided. One of the restrictions, which the U.S. District Court enjoined, prohibits out-of-state individuals from working on Texas voter registration drives. Another, which was also enjoined, makes it impossible for organizations that work on voter registration drives to take into account an employee’s productivity.
