Plaintiffs’ reply to Texas’ request to stay voter registration ruling

Voting for America’s reply to the State of Texas’ request to have Judge Costa stay his voter registration ruling can be found here.

The court has scheduled a hearing on the stay request for Wednesday, August 8, at 4:00 p.m.

From the reply:

[The State of Texas]
wholly fails to articulate what difficulty arises from allowing voting organizations to use perforamance-based metrics, photocopy completed voter registration applications, submit the applications by mail, or operate in multiple counties. To the extent that out-of-state canvassers cause an increased administrative burden on counties to accept and process VDR applications, the burden is slight. Moreover, two of the provisions - the Compensation Prohibition and the In-State Restriction - are only recent policy interpretations.

This post is so short I just included it all here.
