Texas, Georgia, and 33 other US states have voter ID laws in place for the 2020 election. They don't stop voter fraud, but they do prevent thousands of registered voters from casting ballots.

The state Court of Appeals ruled that the way the law was written indicated "an intention to target African American voters rather than a desire to comply with the newly created Amendment in a fair and balanced manner.”
At the close of 2019, the state’s voter ID law was temporarily struck down and its gerrymandered congressional maps were drawn.
