Pennsylvania sisters and photo IDs

Before a judge ruled for Pennsylvania that photo identification would not be required in this election, some sisters worried.  According to The Scranton Times Tribune:

"For decades, Sister Jeanne Gallagher, I.H.M., taught young children about government and the importance of voting.

"As the November election nears, the 86-year-old nun and retired teacher fears the state's controversial Voter ID law will keep her and other senior citizens from having their say in who leads the country."
