(Harrisburg) -- Lawyers led by the American Civil Liberties Union want a state judge to speed up a case asking Gov. Tom Corbett's administration to clearly broadcast the message that voters don't have to show photo ID on Election Day.
Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson says he wants a response in seven days. But, the ACLU says they're asking for a shorter response time so there's time to appeal before the Nov. 6 election.
Simpson halted the requirement October 2 over concerns some voters would be disenfranchised.
The lawyers say the Corbett administration's done virtually nothing to change a media campaign or the perception that ID is required, and has continued to distribute false information.
Corbett, a Republican, signed the politically charged law over Democrats' protests that it would disenfranchise voters.
