Press Conference on Voter ID Law and Sunday Voting

I attended a press conference held by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Congressman Al Green on the Texas voter id law and on concerns about possible restrictions on Sunday voting. The Texas Sec. of State has refused to attempt to educate the public at the status of the Texas Voter ID law (SB14) and so many people think that can not vote with out the proper ID. Congresswoman Jackson Lee has asked the Texas Secretary of State to inform voters about the status of the law and there has been no efforts to do. State Senator Rodney Ellis asked the Secretary of State to issue some guidance and to attempt to educate voters back on May 11 and the Secretary of State also ignored Senator Ellis' request http://www.texastribune.org/texas-politics/voter-id/sos-asked-tell-public-voter-id-not-effect/

Is anyone surprised by the refusal of the Texas Secretary of State to take steps to educate voters as to the status of the law?

As for early voting on Sunday, the states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio are attempting to restrict early voting on Sunday. So far, the efforts to restrict early voting in Sunday in Ohio are suspended by the voter imitative rules and the attempt to eliminate early voting in Sunday has been objected by the Department of Justice under the Voting Rights Act.
