HARRISBURG, Pa. - A legal challenge to the Pennsylvania law mandating photo identification for voters is tentatively scheduled for trial in July.
A state judge on Tuesday announced the trial will begin July 15 in Harrisburg. It's expected to last a week or so.
Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson's order says he'll decide by March 21 whether to modify an injunction that prevented the law from going into effect for the November 2012 election. Until then, the rules for the May 21 primary are up in the air.
Simpson's ruling that blocked the law said he was not convinced that enough voters would have been able to easily obtain the required IDs.
Voters were asked about whether they had identification when they cast ballots in November, but it wasn't required.
