EL CENIZO — Much of 83-year-old José Zuniga’s time is spent in his wheelchair gazing across a gravel yard that’s nestled among shoddily constructed cinder block houses and deteriorating trailers in this border town that has the distinction of being one of the poorest places in the United States.
He’s homebound for the most part, but one of the few events that gets Zuniga out of the house is election day.
But now Zuniga’s ability to cast a ballot is in jeopardy.
A federal court in Washington is preparing to hear arguments in a case that begins Monday on the legality of Texas’ new voter identification law, which would require one of a few valid forms of photo ID to cast a ballot.
