Voter ID legislation approved by Texas Senate

In the first partisan showdown of the 2011 Legislature, the Republican-dominated Senate voted 19-11 Wednesday night to require Texans to show one of five kinds of photo ID before they can vote. Democrats maintained that there is scant evidence of voter fraud in Texas and said the law would disenfranchise minorities, students and the working poor.
