PA Official Touts $5-Million Voter ID Law Campaign



A state official says last year's $5-million multimedia campaign to make voters aware of Pennsylvania's new voter-identification law was larger than any similar effort by other states.
 
Shannon Royer, a deputy secretary of state, testified Thursday on the fourth day of the Commonwealth Court trial on the constitutionality of the photo-ID requirement for voters.
 
Royer declared the federally funded campaign a success despite continuing uncertainty about the law's status. He defended his agency's decision to earmark only about half as much in state money for voter outreach in the November election and next spring's primary election.
 
Earlier Thursday, lawyers for plaintiffs seeking to overturn the law cited a review of state computer records as evidence that some voters would be disenfranchised by the law.
