P.A. Supreme Court Trying To Stop New Law
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court yesterday told a lower court judge to stop a tough new law requiring voters to show photo identification from taking effect in the upcoming presidential election if he finds voters cannot get easy access to ID cards or if he thinks voters will be disenfranchised. In a 4-2 decision the case now goes back to a Commonwealth Court judge who initially rejected a request to stop the law from going forward. If the judge finds there is no voter disenfranchisement and that IDs are easily obtained, then the law can stand. That opinion must be handed down by Oct 2nd.
