Don't forget, I.D. not needed for this election
The state government is under a court order not to enforce the Voter ID law for the Nov. 6 election. But that hasn't stopped the current administration from throwing good money after bad, by continuing to advertise as if the law was in effect.
After a lengthy foray through the appellate court system, the Voter ID law was put on hold a month ago when Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson issued an injunction against its enforcement in this election.
Basically, the administration failed to demonstrate the enforcement of the law would not disenfranchise legitimate voters.
As if to further prove that disenfranchising some legitimate voters is the purpose of the law, the administration has continued with an array of advertising advising people that they need a valid photo ID to vote Nov. 6.
Based on the injunction and the months of controversy surrounding the law, the state should advise people that their votes will count regardless of whether they produce a voter ID on Election Day.
