The League of United Latin American Citizens said Friday its case against the State of Texas over a voter purge list will likely resume on Monday in San Antonio federal court.

The League of United Latin American Citizens claims a key witness has gone missing in its legal case against the State of Texas and the secretary of state's attempt to purge voters from county registration lists.

LULAC wants former Secretary of State employee Betsy Schonhoff to testify in the case before San Antonio Federal Judge Fred Biery, but they say she can't be found.

Voting rights groups and local election officials say the state’s bungled effort to prove there are thousands of noncitizens on the state’s voter rolls is all about making voter registration harder in Texas before the 2020 election.
