(Harrisburg) -- Lawyers challenging a new Pennsylvania law that requires voters to show photo identification are bringing to court people who have encountered hurdles in their effort to get a valid ID.
The law's opponents hope today's testimony persuades a judge to stop the law from taking effect in this year's election.
The hearing ordered by the state Supreme Court is the latest chapter in the legal challenge to the 6-month-old law. Justices say it must be halted before the upcoming election if a judge believes it'll prevent registered voters from casting ballots or if the state isn't ensuring free and easy access to valid ID cards.
State officials say only a small number of people need an ID to vote and the rules to get one now comply with court guidelines.
