Photo I-D’s Still Not Necessary For Tuesday’s Elections

May 16, 2013

Since a court has not yet settled the debate over Pennsylvania’s new law requiring voters to show photo identification, state officials are reminding us that photo I-D’s will still not be required for balloting in Tuesday’s primary elections.

A court case on the status of the new law is scheduled for July.

Those without identification on Tuesday will be given information on which I-D’s are acceptable for voting and how to obtain a free identification for future elections.

Exceptions Tuesday will apply to first-time voters, and to those who will be balloting for the first time at a new polling place.  Those voters must show identification, whether photo or non-photo.
