The Pennsylvania Supreme Court begins oral arguments on the stateā??s new voter ID law today, and a group of citizens and activists will gather in Connell Park, calling on the court to overturn the new voter ID laws.

The law requires voters to show a valid photo identification to vote. Many feel this law will make it difficult for individuals to vote.
Last month, Allegheny county resident and middle school teacher Steven Singer started a petition asking the local elections manager not to enforce strict voter ID laws in his county. Similar petitions then started in eight additional Pennsylvania counties, and the petition has since been expanded statewide. Over 16,000 Pennsylvanians have since signed the statewide petition.

The protest will begin today, Thursday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m. in Connell Park, 800 Gibbons St., Scranton. Those participating will then march to the Lackawanna County Director of Elections Office, located at 2400 Stafford Ave., Scranton.
