Top Stories: State’s Voter Education Efforts To Face Court Hearing

Erik Hersman

The top local stories this morning from KERA News:

A federal judge today will hold a hearing on the state’s voter education efforts. The U.S. Department of Justice says Texas is not complying with court-ordered changes for the November election.

Other stories this morning:

  • Research from the League of Women Voters of Texas found only a fifth of county websites as of the end of August provided “minimally adequate information” about the state’s relaxed voter ID requirements.
  • Urinary tract infections are a common problem in the U.S. with more than three million cases a year. This edition of Vital Signs discusses how to treat and prevent UTIs – and cranberry juice may not be part of that equation.

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:22 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
