HARRISBURG, Pa. - Plaintiffs seeking to overturn Pennsylvania's voter identification law in state court are narrowing their focus to a few dozen ID cards sought by voters before last year's presidential election.
At issue Thursday in Commonwealth Court were the special Pennsylvania Department of State cards developed as an ID of last resort for registered voters who cannot obtain a PennDOT ID card.
American Civil Liberties Union lawyer Witold Walczak said a review of state computer records show 42 registered voters who applied for their cards before the election did not receive it until afterward and 82 others never received cards at all.
Jonathan Marks, a high-ranking state elections official, didn't dispute the numbers but said officials would've tried harder to resolve such problems had a judge not blocked enforcement of the law.
