Pennsylvania judge Robert Simpson has temporarily nulllified Pennsylvania’s voter identification requirement (which is essentially about suppression of minority and youth votes), ordering that it not be enforced in the presidential election on Tuesday, November 6th.

Simpson also said he “will not restrain election officials from asking for photo ID at the polls; rather, I will enjoin enforcement of those parts of Act 18 which directly result in disenfranchisement.” In other words, righties can harass voters who lack the right kind of ID but they can’t stop them from voting.

Simpson’s ruling can be appealed to the state’s Supreme Court (and you know it will be) but Simpson deserves a round of applause.
