(Austin, TX) // Today, Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) released the following statement:

“I am extremely disappointed the 5th Circuit has chosen to keep in place a law that just last week was ruled to be a ‘poll tax’ that was ‘imposed with an unconstitutional discriminatory purpose.’ Near last in the country in voter turnout, Texas should be working to get more folks to the polls – not to turn away legal, legitimate voters.”
