VOTER ID FIGHT
State Rep. Bill Kortz (left) and Joe Kuenzig of Munhall carry a crate with more than 17,000 signed petitions opposing the new Pennsylvania voter ID law to the County Office Building as protesters of the law follow behind in downtown Pittsburgh on Thursday, September 13, 2012. The organizer of the event, Steven Singer (far left) an eighth-grade teacher at Steel Valley in Munhall, says the district he teaches in will be especially impacted by the voter ID law. "This is personal for me," he said. "We hope the State Supreme Court will either halt the law or throw it out." Stephanie Strasburg | Tribune-Review
Petitioners filled Allegheny County Elections Bureau to deliver a request for election officials not to enforce the state's voter I.D. law.
