Opponents of the law, which went on the books in March, have asked Simpson, a former Northampton County Court judge, to issue an injunction to keep it from taking effect. They argued that there’d be no harm to the state if that happened, but there would be irreparable harm to voters if he did not grant the request.
“These are not hypotheticals. These are real people,” Walczak said. “There are real victims of this law.”
If the law stands, we know that hundreds of thousands of people will definitely have their rights violated. The state has not been able to prove even scant risk of voter impersonation fraud, and certainly not on the scale capable of swinging elections. The state is clearly unprepared, and there is going to be serious chaos in November unless Judge Simpson grants an injunction.
