Statement on the Filing of Senate Bill 5 – Voter ID


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today following the filing of Senate Bill 5 – the Voter ID by Senator Joan Huffman, R-Houston.

“Nothing is more critical to our democracy than the integrity of the voting process. That’s why I have fought for voter ID since my days as a state senator. Citizens must be able to trust the certified outcome of every election and we must protect the voting rights of every eligible voter in Texas. I congratulate Sen. Huffman on SB 5 and on her commitment to voter integrity.”
