Gov. Tom Corbett (R) signed Pennsylvania’s Voter-ID law in March in an attempt to prevent voter fraud.
Pennsylvania voters will now need to show their driver’s license, or other forms of photo ID at the polls in November.
Democrats criticized the law claiming its true intention is to suppress voter-turnout. Backed by the ACLU and other rights groups, 10 individuals are suing to get the voter-ID law thrown out on the grounds that it violates the state constitution. They say the law will place the biggest burden on those who don’t drive, mainly youth, the elderly, minorities and urban residents.
