State Rep. Erin Zwiener (D-Driftwood) has filed legislation that would allow student IDs to be used as voter ID in Texas.

As is the case with many bills aimed at elections, this bill has consequences not highlighted in a press release or mainstream media regurgitation.

Filed on Tuesday, HB 1950 would amend current state law regarding voter ID adding, “an identification card issued by a public institution of higher education located in this state that contains the person’s photograph.”

Currently, acceptable forms of photo ID include a Texas driver’s license or election ID card issued by DPS, a U.S. military identification card that contains the person’s photograph, a U.S. citizenship certificate, a U.S passport, or a concealed carry permit, also issued by the DPS.

It’s also safe to say, the yellow journalists on 9th have reached shameful levels of lobbying against David Whitley, lobbying that continued after yesterday’s hearing.

Whitley, appointed by Governor Greg Abbott in December to Secretary of State has been working with counties to verify the citizenship status of registered voters. This is a required activity for the Secretary of State to perform.

At a hearing yesterday before the Nominations Committee, Whitley avoided missteps and provided more context for what’s been happening over the last month and year as it regards safeguarding Texas elections.

Just how well did it go?
