The trial of Pennsylvania's tough new voter identification law is on hold until next week.
On Thursday, lawyers renewed their debate in Commonwealth Court over conflicting estimates of how many voters lack the mandatory photo ID that the law would require before recessing for a four-day weekend.
William Wecker, a statistician hired by the state, criticized the methodology of the plaintiffs' expert who estimated that hundreds of thousands of voter lack proper IDs. Wecker, who's from Wyoming, testified that Philadelphia statistician Bernard Siskin overstated the number by failing to adequately consider voters who have died, moved out of state or are barred from voting because they are incarcerated felons.
On cross examination, a plaintiffs' attorney highlighted weaknesses in Wecker's own analysis. The nine-day-old trial is scheduled to resume Tuesday.
