The ACLU of Pennsylvania announced Thursday that its lawsuit over Pennsylvania’s new Voter ID law has a trial date. Witold Walcvak is the legal director for the ACLU of Pennsylvania. He says the voter ID law will now have its day in court. “We had our first meeting with the trial judge, Judge Robert Simpson. And he has scheduled us for a 5 to 7 day trial beginning on July 25th.”
The trial date comes just one day after the Department of State announced process that allows Pennsylvania-born voters to obtain a photo ID without first obtaining a birth certificate.
