23. So ironic. The "saving grace" in Texas WAS that they have a large Hispanic population. They had to

prove to DOJ that there weren't too many Hispanics without drivers licenses. But, who is
Hispanic does not reside in the voter records. They had to guess by surname. Then,
they took that database segment and matched it against the DMV records and came up with "too many" without.

PA, for sure, doesn't have income on their voter records. Probably not race either. So, there
would be no way PA could prove that these groups would be disenfranchised or wouldn't be.
Interesting dilemma.
