Trial begins over Texas voter laws that sparked 38-day walkout by Democrats in 2021

  • A trial has begun in Texas over a controversial voting law that sparked a 38-day walkout by Democrats in 2021. The law, signed by Republican Governor Greg Abbott, includes strict changes to voting procedures and was prompted by former President Donald Trump's false claims of a stolen election.
  • The lawsuit against the law was filed by a coalition of voting rights groups, including the American Civil Liberties Union and the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund. Despite the legal challenge, the law has already taken effect, banning 24-hour polling places and drive-thru voting.
  • The outcome of the trial could impact the voting rules that Texas will use for the 2024 elections, although any decision is likely to be appealed. The trial is expected to last for weeks, and the ruling by U.S. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez is uncertain.
