Lawyers summed up their cases to cap the 12-day trial of Pennsylvania's tough voter-identification law.
Attorney for plaintiffs seeking to overturn the mandatory photo ID requirement and for the state were given an hour Thursday each to make closing arguments before Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley.
There's no word when McGinley will rule. Jennifer Clarke of Philadelphia's Public Interest Law Center, a member of the plaintiffs' legal team, said the law ``unreasonably and unnecessarily'' interferes with the right to vote. She cited estimates that hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians lack proper IDs and told McGinley, ``it's time to put an end to this.''
Arguing for the state, Philadelphia lawyer Alicia Hickok said the plaintiffs failed to show that the law is unconstitutional and said there are ample opportunities for any voter to get an acceptable ID at no cost.
