Election official will not enforce Pennsylvania voter ID laws

A Democratic state election official says he will not enforce the Pennsylvania voter ID laws. Christopher Broach says he will continue following the state’s old voting rights to avoid the disenfranchisement of groups that may not have official state identification and are inclined to vote for Democrats, such as college students, African-Americans, and Latinos. The Huffington Post has the full story.

An election official in Pennsylvania has said that he will not enforce the state’s voter I.D. law.

Christopher Broach, a Democrat from Colwyn, Penn. told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he would continue to honor the state’s old voting rules.

“I am taking the stand against the new Republican voter law and hoping that anyone nationally whom has been elected to an office with the title of judge will do just that,” Broach said.

Supporters of the law, whose fate will be decided in a closely watched state court case, say that is necessary to prevent voter fraud. But the state’s attorneys recently stipulated that there was no evidence of in-person voter fraud in the area, and the state had never prosecuted anyone for in-person voter fraud.
