AUSTIN TEXAS - A federal appeals court has ruled that Texas' strict voter ID law violates the Voting Rights Act and has ordered changes before the November election. The ruling was issued Wednesday by the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The ruling instructs a lower court to make changes that fix the "discriminatory effect" of the 2011 law in the months leading up to this fall's election. But the ruling said the lower court should make changes that disrupt this year's election season as little as possible.
