Court Overturns PA's Voter ID Law. Tell AG Kane Not to Appeal

To be delivered to Hon. Kathleen Kane, Attorney General

Petition Statement

I agree with Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley. Voter ID is "invalid and unconstitutional on its face." Do not appeal the voter ID law to the Supreme Court.
There are currently 9,888 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The great news is that Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley said the Pennsylvania Voter ID bill is unconstitutional.

He ruled that the law is "invalid and unconstitutional on its face as the provision and issuance of compliant identification does not comport with liberal access and unreasonably burdens the right to vote.

“Voting laws are designed to assure a free and fair election; the Voter ID Law does not further this goal.”

Now the bad news. It is still possible for the law to be appealed. PA Attorney General Kathleen Kane defended the Voter ID law before Commonwealth Court. She may appeal the ruling to PA's Supreme Court. If she does appeal, the Voter ID law may be reinstated.

Tell Attorney General Kane that we agree with Judge McGinley. Voter ID is “invalid and unconstitutional on its face.” Do not appeal Voter ID to the Supreme Court.
