8. No ruling yet but this article is interesting

The judge has not issued a stay yet and a ruling is expected soon. The ABC station has a good article on the hear and it is clear that the GOP election administrator is not a happy camper http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/in_focus&id=8766634

For two hours on Wednesday, the state's attorney general office pleaded with judge to turn his decision over. He didn't seem inclined to do so but it'll take a day or two before he makes a ruling.

On Wednesday, on the way out of the hearing, we wanted to talk to Keith Ingram, the secretary of state's director of elections No one knows the issues better than him but he wasn't talking.

"You're the director of elections, right?" we asked Ingram.

"Right," he replied.

"So you do know more about the law than your spokesman, right?" we asked.

"You're going to talk to my spokesman," he said.

"You just won't talk to us about it," we said.

"They have consistently the lowest voter turnout of all the states. Something's gotta be done about it," attorney for Project Vote Chad Dunn said. "Our legislature doesn't look for solutions to that problem, they look for more obstacles for the ballot box."
