After the Federal Court ruling opposing the Texas Voter ID law was announced, there were still strong feelings about the controversial issue. If the court had voted in favor, Texas voters would have been required to have a valid photo ID when they head to the polls in November.

We asked you to participate in a survey, asking ‘Should voters be required to show valid ID before casting their ballots?’ The results are in.

As opposed to the unanimous court ruling, the final statistics of our poll are much closer. Our results show that just over 57% believe that voters should not be required to produce photo identification at polling places, while nearly 43% say ‘yes, everyone should have photo ID to vote’. Here’s what the final poll looks like:

(For the record, we required no proof of picture identification while conducting this survey.)

The survey result isn’t the only information we gathered. Many of you also stated your strong opinion on the matter, and it opened some interesting discussion. Some are opposed to the ruling, and some in favor. Here’s a sample of what was said:
