Ruth Bader Ginsburgs Dissent  

Ruth Bader Ginsburg By : Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg issued a six-page dissent >>

The new Texas Voter ID Law rejects idenification from federally recognized tribes, in-state four year colleges and IDs issued by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Bill 14 aimed to ward off,  and the means adopted by the State to that end. Between 2002 and 2011, there were only two in-person voter fraud cases prosecuted to conviction in Texas.
 
The potential magnitude of racially discriminatory voter disenfranchisement counseled hesitation before disturbing the District Court’s findings and final judgment. Senate Bill 14 may prevent more than 600,000 registered Texas voters (about 4.5% of all registered voters) from voting in person for lack of compliant identification. Id., at 50–51, 54. A sharply disproportionate percentage of those voters are African-American or Hispanic.
