Trial of PA Voter ID Law Enters Seventh Day



Plaintiffs seeking to overturn Pennsylvania's voter-identification law have presented their last witnesses in the seven-day-old trial.  
 
Three witnesses testified in videos played Tuesday in Commonwealth Court before Judge Bernard McGinley.
 
All were older women who no longer have driver's licenses and depend largely on relatives and friends for transportation. One was 73-year-old Patricia Norton of Berks County, who says she gave up trying to get a free photo ID prior to last year's presidential election because of her chronic back pain and the red tape she encountered at a PennDOT office.
 
Lawyers for the plaintiffs say the mandatory photo ID requirement is an obstacle that could prevent such voters from exercising their constitutional right to vote. State officials say they can accommodate any eligible voter who needs an ID.
