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.
UPDATE- August 14: Judge Costa has denied the State of Texas’ request for a stay. The court’s ruling can be found here.
