(Harrisburg) -- Officials from state agencies are the first witnesses to testify as the commonwealth opened its case in a trial of Pennsylvania's voter identification law.
Kelly O'Donnell, operations and management director at the Department of Aging, conceded earlier today under questioning by the plaintiffs' attorneys that she put out some erroneous information about the mandatory photo ID requirement after its March 2012 approval.
O'Donnell said she erred in telling a local senior center last year that voters could get the IDs from any PennDOT photo center, when most people needed to go to one of the fewer PennDOT licensing centers.
Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard McGinley said the trial is behind schedule and urged both sides to pick up the pace.
The March 2012 law has yet to be enforced.
