The Texas Picture Voter ID Law
A core component of a well-functioning democratic society is having leaders who will be bound by ethical decision making. Your task for this paper is to research and evaluate the recent legislation passed by the Texas Congress and signed by the Texas Governor concerning election reform in the State of Texas. When researching this topic, you must consider the impact this legislation may have on accessibility to voting and election fraud. You must take a position on this issue and provide evidence to support that position.
Within your paper—and keeping in mind and evaluating the ethical merits of this decision—you should address the arguments in support of—and opposition to—this decision. What evidence is there that lends credence to each side of the argument? Finally, this decision has political implications. What were those implications, and how do those realities enhance your understanding of how politics works? You must draw a conclusion and justify your position.
