Professor Jim Granato is the director of the UH Hobby Center for Public Policy, which recently conducted a study on the Texas Voter ID Law as it related to the 2014 election. Among the findings on the controversial rule: confusion over what constituted proper identification kept many eligible voters from the polls, even though many were in possession of the correct IDs. Granto is available to media to talk about the Texas Voter ID, which has been struck down in federal court for violating the Voting Rights Act.
The study is available here.
