PA Voter ID Trial Resumes



The free identification card for registered voters without other acceptable photo IDs is back in the spotlight in the state trial over Pennsylvania's tough new voter ID law.
 
Lawyers took turns today questioning Jonathan Marks, an elections official in the Pennsylvania Department of State, which works with Department of Transportation to process the special cards. Marks says more than 3,800 of the cards have been issued, including 49 that are being held for various reasons.
 
They're available free to registered voters who must affirm in writing they have no other form of ID acceptable under the law. Lawyers for the plaintiffs claim dozens of voters who applied for the cards before last year's election did not receive them before the election, even though the law was not being enforced.
