Tuesday’s primary will serve as a dry-run for the most recent voter ID law that was enacted a little more than a month ago.
The new voter ID law, which was signed into law by Gov. Corbett on March 14, still has numerous tweaks and is being forecasted as a “dress rehearsal” for the November 6 general election. In fact, state officials are still rushing to figure out how to implement the new legislation.
This identification law requires that would-be Pennsylvania voters present a photo ID that has an expiration date and is current.
According to an Associated Press story, IDs issued by federal or state governments, such as Pa. driver’s licenses, U.S. passports and military IDs with either an indefinite expiration date, or an expiration date that has not yet passed, are all acceptable. Additionally, identification issued from accredited Pa. colleges and universities, as well as ID issued by elderly care facilities, are all acceptable forms of voter ID.
