U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on Governor Tom Corbett’s decision to forgo further appeals on the current Voter ID ruling:

I’m pleased that Governor Corbett has agreed to forego further appeals of the current Voter ID proposal. I called on Governor Corbett to drop his Administration’s appeal because implementing this law would have prevented eligible Pennsylvanians from exercising their right to vote. Make no mistake, Voter ID cannot be retooled or tweaked in a way that would make it fair to those who would be denied access to the ballot. Voter ID is a scheme whose very premise is flawed.”
