Judge Issues Partial Injunction Against Pa. Voter Suppression Law for Nov. 6 Election

A Pennsylvania state judge this morning issued a partial injunction of the state's voter ID law. Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson ruled that voters will still be asked to present a valid ID, and if they don't have one, they'll be asked to present one next time but will be able to vote in the Nov. 6 election.

Voters will not be required to return within six days to show a valid identification card, as was required by the law passed earlier this year. 

We’ll bring you more details later. This ruling only applies to the Nov. 6 election.
