This morning we got word that Judge Simpson, of the PA Commonwealth Court, denied our petition for injunctive relief against Pennsylvania’s voter
suppression ID law. In plain English, that means voter ID stands. We are still reviewing the decision at present, but we’ll try to provide a layman’s explanation of the judge’s ruling as soon as we can.
In the meantime, you can read the full decision here.
This fight is not over. All along we’ve expected an appeal to the state Supreme Court – we just didn’t know if we’d be defending or appealing. Thanks to our partner organizations, to all of our members and donors who have provided the funding that makes this fight possible, and of course to all of you for standing by us in the fight against voter suppression.
