U.S. Supreme Court

Carrington v. Rash, 380 U.S. 89 (1965)

Carrington v. Rash

No. 82

Argued January 28, 1965

Decided March 1, 1965

380 U.S. 89


Petitioner, a member of the armed services who moved to Texas in 1962 and is concededly domiciled and intends to make his permanent home there, was refused the right to vote because of a provision of the Texas Constitution permitting a serviceman to vote only in the county where he resided at the time of entry into service.

Held: A State can impose a reasonable residence requirements for voting, but it cannot, under the Equal Protection Clause, deny the ballot to a bona fide resident merely because he is a member of the armed services. Pp. 380 U. S. 89-97.

378 S.W.2d 304, reversed.
