Lawyers in a lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania's tough new voter identification law says at least 1-million Pennsylvania voters lack the photo ID they'll need for their votes to count in the November 6th election.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania made the claim Wednesday after filing its brief in preparation for a courtroom showdown set to begin next week.
Governor Tom Corbett's administration originally estimated 1-percent of the state's 8.3 million voters lacked a state-issued ID that would satisfy the law, but later suggested the proportion could be as much 9-percent. The ACLU figure is based partly on its own statewide poll and puts the number around 12-percent.
The ACLU and its partners are seeking a court order to block enforcement of the law.
