PA Judge Issues Preliminary Injunction Against Voter ID Law


Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Judge Robert E. Simpson has issued a preliminary injunction in the state’s #VoterID case, blocking language affecting provisional ballots from taking effect.

Here’s the germane language from the ruling:

“I will enjoin enforcement of those provisions of Act 18 which amend the provisional ballot procedures of the Election Code and cause disenfranchisement based on failure to present photo ID for in-person voting. The injunction will have the effect of extending the express transition provisions of Act 18 through the general election.”
