PENNSYLVANIA’S VOTER PHOTO I-D LAW STRUCK DOWN!

January 17, 2014
By

A state judge has struck down Pennsylvania’s law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls.

Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley ruled that the requirement that was the centerpiece of the 2012 Voter I-D Law places an unreasonable burden on the fundamental right to vote.

The law had been approved over the protests of many Democratic state lawmakers.

Plaintiffs in a trial last summer claimed the inconvenience of obtaining the proper photo identification might discourage some Pennsylvanians from voting.

Officials at the Department of State, meanwhile, insisted voters had been given ample opportunities to meet the law’s requirements.
