To be eligible to register to vote in Texas, a person must be:
A United States citizen;
A resident of the Texas County in which application for registration is made;
At least 18 years old on Election Day;

Obama on Wednesday joined the larger Marxist/Progressive effort to spotlight voting rights ahead of this year’s midterms, blasting “active efforts to deter people from voting.”
“Apparently it’s fairly active here in Texas,” Obama told supporters at a Houston fundraiser. “The idea that you’d purposely try to prevent people from voting? UN-American. How is it that we’re putting up with that? We don’t have to.”
Henchman Holder chimed in at another rally “Let me be very clear: Protecting the right to vote — the action that truly makes our nation an exceptional one — will continue to be a priority for this administration, for this Department of Justice, for this president, and for this attorney general.”
Texas believes it is proper that a person be able to verify they are eligible to vote. Obama, Holder and the other Marxist/Progressives claim this is discriminatory. The Marxist/Progressives have instead stopped states from purging the voting rolls by eliminating voters who have died. The Marxist/Progressives have stopped states from purging the voting rolls by eliminating voters who are no longer residents of that state. The Marxist/Progressives have praised documented accounts of people who vote early and vote often. Henchman Holder has openly stated by his actions that voter intimidation is legal so long as it is the Black Panthers doing the intimidation.
Free and open elections are essential for our society to function as a free and open society. Most societies have elections. The totalitarian states have elections in the fashion Obama and Holder are prescribing. Free societies have elections whereby each legal citizen has one vote. This is what Texas is advocating and what Obama, Holder and the Marxist/Progressives oppose.
