The state’s attorney general says today’s ruling from the Supreme Court removes the need for judicial review, allowing changes to voting law being held up in court to take effect immediately.

That includes a law passed in 2011 that requires all Texans to show a valid photo ID in order to vote, as well as changes to state redistricting maps.

“Today’s ruling ensures that Texas is no longer one of just a few states that must seek approval from the federal government before its election laws can take effect,” Attorney General Greg Abbott said in a statement released this morning.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is following suit. According to a statement on the agency’s website, “Photo identification will now be required when voting in elections in Texas.” For those without the proper identification, DPS says it will start accepting applications for an alternative ID, known as an Election Identification Certificate.
