(Harrisburg) -- A judge has denied a request for an injunction from opponents of Pennsylvania's voter ID law, who wanted him to order the state to be clearer about voters not needing photo ID at the polls Tuesday.
Commonwealth Judge Robert Simpson has ruled the opponents did not provide any proof the state's message about photo ID being requested, but not required would lead to disenfranchisement.
Last month, Simpson ordered the voter ID law put on hold for the upcoming election. But he said the state should continue educating voters about the law, which will apply in future elections.
The American Civil Liberties Union says the judge's ruling comes as no surprise. A Department of State spokesman says the state wants people to focus on getting out to vote.
