Last week, the trial over the Pennsylvania voter photo identification law started in state court. The proceedings are wrapping up today, and boy has the trial had some interesting moments!
The League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania (LWVPA) is one of the plaintiffs in the case, and is being represented by the Pennsylvania branch of the ACLU. Yesterday, LWVPA’s president Olivia Thorne testified on the dangers of this law and how it is impacting the vital work the League is trying to do to educate and mobilize voters in advance of the November election.
Today, the court is hearing closing arguments and is expected to announce its decision later this month. If you’re interested in an in-depth look at the trial, the ACLU has been blogging about the proceedings.
