Trial Begins for Pennsylvania Voter ID Law
A trial begins today to determine the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's voter identification law that requires voters have photo IDs with them in order to vote.
A trial set to begin today on the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's voter identification law represents a major step toward a judicial ruling on whether the photo requirement should be enforced at polling places statewide or thrown out as unconstitutional.
Nine days are set aside for the trial in Harrisburg in Commonwealth Court. Civil libertarians challenging the law and state officials defending it say they expect the state Supreme Court will ultimately decide the case.
At issue is a voter ID law that would be one of the strictest in the nation if it is upheld but has never been enforced.
