Texas Residency Restriction Bill

Texas State LULAC v. Elfant

Lawsuit filed on behalf of Texas State LULAC and Voto Latino against multiple Texas counties challenging the voter suppression law Senate Bill 1111. The complaint alleges that the bill β€” which prohibits establishing residence “for the purpose of influencing the outcome of a certain election,” restricts individuals from registering to vote using an address where they don’t live full-time, adds strict voter identification requirements for voters that use P.O. boxes to register to vote and more β€” violates the First, 14th and 26th Amendments. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) and two counties, Medina and Real, intervened in the case.
