|PA Election Officials Able to Detect Voter ID Fraud|
Thursday, August 16, 2012
HARRISBURG - A court decision released yesterday (Wednesday) in Harrisburg upholds the new voter ID law that provides Pennsylvania election officials with the ability to detect voter fraud at polling places. The ruling denied a request for an injunction to prevent implementation of the new law passed by the legislature earlier this year. House majority leader Mike Turzai said the measure is aimed at providing a common sense method to prevent voter fraud and protect the sanctity of every vote in Pennsylvania. Opponents are expected to appeal the decision.
