Pennsylvania's state Supreme Court justices on Thursday aggressively questioned whether a politically charged law requiring photo identification from all voters should take effect for the Nov. 6 presidential election and whether it guarantees the right to vote. The high court appeal follows a lower court's refusal last month to halt the law from taking effect. The high court normally has seven members, but it heard the case with just six -- three Republicans and three Democrats. A seventh justice was suspended in May after being charged in a political corruption investigation. A 3-3 deadlock would allow the lower court decision to stand. NPR has the AP story
