Pennsylvania Supreme Court Throws Voter ID Case Back

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court announced a decision today on the state’s controversial voter ID law. The court threw the decision to the lower court, ruling 4-2. The 2 dissenting judges said the law should just be tossed out. Instead, the lower court will have to see whether or not the law disenfranchises voters, and whether or not PENNDot is doing the job correctly. The court also suggests enjoining the law, and says the law may be hard to implement in a few months before Election Day. Opponents say the law disenfranchise Democratic voters, while proponents say the law is needed to crack down on voter fraud.
