PA Voter ID Trial Recesses in Disarray



The plaintiffs in a trial of Pennsylvania's voter-identification law are refusing to rest their case until they learn more about any potential problems in issuing the mandatory photo ID cards.
 
Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley cleared the courtroom briefly Wednesday to huddle with lawyers from both sides, but there was no sign of a compromise as the court recessed.
 
At issue are about 500 voters who were turned down for a Department of Transportation ID card last year. Plaintiffs say more than 100 of them are registered voters who then applied for a special voting-only ID card before the 2012 presidential election, but didn't receive them in time.
 
State officials say the law wasn't being enforced and that most of the 500 have received one card or the other.
