23. Voters not realizing that their ID does not qualify will be a big problem if the law is not enjoined

From one of the expert reports in the lawsuit challenging the photo ID law:

"Almost all of the voting eligible population in Pennsylvania believes that they have a valid photo ID: 97.8% of eligible voters, 98.8% of registered voters, and 98.7% of those who voted in the 2008 election claim they do possess a valid photo ID.

Despite the high rates of perceived compliance with the law, a large number of potential voters in Pennsylvania lack a valid photo ID (non-expired with name confirming): 14.4% of eligible voters lack a valid ID (1,364,433 people), 12.8% of registered voters
(1,055,200), and 12.6% of those who voted in the 2008 election (757,325 people)."
