Corbett leans against appealing Pa. voter ID case

Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett says he's leaning against appealing a judge's ruling to postpone the enforcement of Pennsylvania's new voter identification requirement until after the presidential election.

Corbett said Tuesday that no final decision had been made.

The 6-month-old law requires each voter to show a valid photo ID and is a signature accomplishment of Corbett and his fellow Republicans who control the state Legislature.

Democrats opposed the law, saying it could keep the elderly, poor, young adults and minorities from voting.

Corbett says he believes it's possible for every registered voter who needs a voter ID to get one, and that his administration will continue its efforts to make sure ID is available to voters in all future elections.
