The heads of York County’s two biggest political parties are weighing in on last week’s decision by a U.S. District court upholding South Carolina’s controversial Voter ID law.

York County Democratic Party chairwoman Pat Calkins says the reason civil rights and voting rights groups are not appealing the ruling is because judges changed the law so a photo ID would not be required.

York County Republican Party chairman Glenn McCall says you can cast a provisional ballot if you don’t have a photo ID.

Calkins and McCall were guests on Monday’s edition of Palmetto Mornings on WRHI.
