WJAC-TV: Deadline for PA Voter ID Law Ruling a Day Away
A decision is possible Monday. Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson is up against a state Supreme Court order to decide no later than Tuesday.
The high court wants him to stop it from taking effect in this year’s election if he finds the state hasn’t met the law’s promise of providing easy access to a photo ID, or if he believes it’ll prevent any registered voter from casting a ballot.
Simpson heard two days of testimony last week. Simpson suggested he may strike part of the law so that someone can still cast a provisional ballot without having to show or get a photo ID.
