Judge Halts Pa.'s Strict New Voter ID Law
Updated On: Oct 02, 2012

Oct. 2, 2012 | A judge postponed Pennsylvania's voter identification requirement on Tuesday, ordering the state not to enforce it in this year's presidential election. The decision by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson on the law requiring each voter to show a valid photo ID could be appealed to the state Supreme Court. The law could go into full effect next year, under Simpson's ruling...[The law] was already a political lightning rod when a top state Republican lawmaker boasted at a GOP dinner in June that the ID requirement "is going to allow Gov. Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania." Full story at CBS News.
