Last week the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania declared that the Pennsylvania voter ID law was unconstitutional.

It is undisputed that voter ID is the centerpiece of voter suppression laws and gets the headlines when the laws are being discussed. Voter ID is normally justified as necessary to prevent in-person voter fraud. However, it is well documented that numerous investigations around the country have turned up negligible voter fraud and where it was found, it was the kind of fraud that would not be prevented by voter ID.
