KVUE: Rep. Veasey discusses issues with TX Voter ID Laws

"There is every reason to think the discriminatory Voter ID law will result in fewer Texans voting than would otherwise vote.  At this point in the November election, however, it is too soon to draw conclusions. Local and municipal elections in off years historically have a lower voter turnout, which makes it difficult to draw conclusions from non-representative data. This election and the new voting law have been shown to present problems for many women, who are more likely to have name changes than their male counterparts. We should be making it easier for Texans to exercise their right to vote, not more difficult." -- Rep. Marc Veasey, TX-33 Statement to KVUE-Austin
