According to the Associated Press, a trial is set to open on whether a mandatory photo-ID requirement for Pennsylvania voters should be enforced at polling places across the state or be thrown out as unconstitutional.

Nine days are set aside for the trial slated to start Monday in Harrisburg.

At issue is a 2012 voter ID law that would be one of the nation’s strictest if it is upheld. A state judge suspended enforcement in the 2012 presidential election and this year’s primary because of concerns that it could disenfranchise voters who lacked a valid ID.
