PENNSYLVANIA: Billboards Wrongly Claim Photo ID Is Required To Vote

Even though a judge overturned Pennsylvania's attempt to require photo IDs at the ballot box, state-funded billboards continue to claim otherwise.
The state-sponsored billboard’s message may leave some voters confused about what’s needed to cast a ballot this year, after a court ruling last week blocked a requirement to produce an approved photo identification at polling places. Television advertisements highlighting the law that passed this year also were broadcast as recently as Oct. 6. Lingering ads about the law in the Republican-led state may suppress votes on Nov. 6, opponents say, while just 3 percentage points separated the presidential contenders in a recent Pennsylvania poll.
