Judge Blocks Pennsylvania Voter ID Law

CNN reported that a Pennsylvania judge ruled that state officials cannot enforce a new voter ID law in next month’s presidential election.  The ruling by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson is expected to be appealed, but amounted to good news for Democrats who contend that the voter ID law is motivated by Republican efforts to suppress the traditionally Democartic minority vote.  “Today’s ruling is a temporary setback,” said Horace Cooper, director of the National Center for Public Policy Research’s Voter Identification Task Force. “Notably, the court’s ruling accepts the principle that the voter ID rules are legal. Unfortunately, the timing of the change meant that Pennsylvanians will have to wait one more election cycle before they can be sure their elections are fraud-free,” Cooper said.
