Pennsylvania voter ID law taken back to court

Pennsylvanias Republican-backed voter identification law will be challenged in court on Monday after being both upheld and suspended in 2012, the Allentown Morning Call reported.
The law, which requires voters to provide ID at the polls, was put on hold in an October 2012 ruling by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson, who found that the state had not issued enough identifications to account for voters who could not produce documents.
The plaintiffs will ask Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley for both a preliminary injunction and a permanent ban on enforcement of the law, which was passed in March 2012 in a Republican-dominated state legislature.
