Is Pa. Ready for Voter ID?

A new study, released Tuesday by the The Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center may have an effect on Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson’s ruling on the fate of Voter ID.

The Department found serious issues with the ease of obtaining proper voting identification from 44 driver license centers. Obstacles included long lines and uniformed PennDOT staffers.

According to the study, in almost 50% of cases, observers received inaccurate or incomplete information.

Court hearings for the law resumed today. Judge Simpson has 6 days, until October 2, to make a ruling.
