Pennsylvania Voter ID Law Passes First Hurdle - On Way To Supreme Court - BUT Is IT Valid?
Posted Scott B. Cooper on Aug 16, 2012 in General
The Harrisburg Patriot News is reporting today that the battle over the state's controversial voter ID law now moves to the state Supreme Court. Yesterday, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson rejected a suit to block the law, or delay enforcement of it. Simpson ruled that the law is constitutional because it applies to everyone. The Supreme Court will be mindful of the election cycle and "will rule in an expeditious manner," said Art Heinz, a spokesman for the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts.
The state's new voter ID law has garnered national attention and a raging debate. It was passed earlier this year and takes effect in the Nov. 6 general election.
