Question of the Day: Texas Voter ID Edition

So let’s say you are the federal district judge inclined to issue an opinion striking down Texas’s voter id law. Do you issue something now, barring its use in the upcoming election (raising the ubiquitous Purcell issue aside from the merits), knowing there’s a good chance you get quickly reversed by the 5th Circuit or SCOTUS, or do you wait until after this election, when Texas will be able to point to more evidence that the sky did not fall with the use of voter id in the midterm elections?
