Good reasoning here:
HARRISBURG — Groups challenging the new voter ID law made their final case Thursday, arguing that requiring photo identification at the polls could disenfranchise many Pennsylvania voters but particularly those who are poor, uneducated, Hispanic and female.
But the state — in its most extensive defense of why the law should be in effect for the November elections — countered that the requirement to show photo identification applies equally to all voters. While some people may need to go through the effort of obtaining identification, said Senior Deputy Attorney General Patrick Cawley, that does not make the law unconstitutional.
“To be sure, voters do share some responsibility to obtain an ID and to get themselves to the polls,” Mr. Cawley said. “The law does not require the commonwealth to eliminate all inconveniences.”
Anyone remember the motor-voter law and how the Dems abused that to get people registered who were not citizens but could get drivers licenses? Just something to think about.
