(Harrisburg) -- State attorneys will be presenting more witnesses as a trial on Pennsylvania's voter-identification law enters its ninth day.
Today is the last scheduled trial day before an extended weekend break. The trial will resume Tuesday.
Lawyers for plaintiffs seeking to have the law declared unconstitutional refused to close their case yesterday, saying they want more information about potential problems in issuing mandatory photo ID cards last year.
The March 2012 law has yet to be enforced because of court rulings leading up to the trial.
The plaintiffs' lawyers say more than 100 registered voters applied for a free, voting-only ID card before last year's election, but did not receive it in time. The lawyers say that's an indication some voters would be disenfranchised if the law is implemented.
