Pennsylvania Voter ID Law Debate Sent Back to Lower Court


The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has sent the debate on the state’s new voter ID law back to a lower court. The law is supposedly intended to prevent voter fraud in Pennsylvania. Many critics of the law claim that it’s actual purpose is to disenfranchise voters in Pennsylvania. The state Supreme Court wants the lower court to hold speedy hearings to determine what will be done to ensure that the state’s eligible voters have proper identification in time for the November election. The ruling, it seems, makes it much more likely that the new law could be stayed until after the upcoming election. [Inquirer]
