93-Year-Old Grandma Sues Pennsylvania Over Voter ID Law
Without her birth certificate or a driver’s license, Viviette Applewhite, who’s been voting since 1960, will have trouble being allowed to vote with the new Pennsylvania voter ID law.
She will be the plaintiff in the voter identification lawsuit being filed by the ACLU and the NAACP in the state, which claims that “the state’s voter photo ID law violates the Pennsylvania Constitution by depriving citizens of their most fundamental constitutional right – the right to vote.”
Applewhite no longer has a copy of her birth certificate, and she does not have a drivers’ license. Without either of these things, the new Pennsylvania restrictions say that she is ineligible to vote.
