Pennsylvania AFL-CIO Challenges the Constitutionality of Pennsylvania's New Voter ID Law

On July 18, 2012, Willig, Williams & Davidson filed an amicus brief with the Commonwealth Court on behalf of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO in a suit filed by individual voters to challenge the constitutionality of Pennsylvania’s new voter ID law. The brief argues that the law violates several provisions of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; that it will unlawfully disenfranchise or discourage legitimately registered voters from exercising their right to vote; and that it is completely contrary to Pennsylvania’s long and proud constitutional history of protecting and expanding voting rights. The brief also argues that this legislation is a sinister, partisan effort to suppress voter turnout and has the potential to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of duly registered Pennsylvania voters.

To read the full amicus brief filed on behalf of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, see the PDF document below.
