This year's Municipal Primary will be held on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013, and the Municipal Election will be held on Tuesday, November 5th, 2013. In accordance with the October 2nd, 2012 court ruling, the voter ID law will go into effect starting with the 2013 Municipal Primary.
Voters will be required to show photo ID (or non-photo IDs for those with religious objections to being photgraphed)!
All photo IDs must contain an expiration date that is current, unless noted otherwise. Acceptable IDs include:
-Photo IDs issued by the U.S. Federal Government or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania driverís license or non-driverís license photo ID (IDs are valid for voting purposes 12 months past expiration date)
-Valid U.S. passport
-U.S. military ID - active duty and retired military (a military or veteranís ID must designate an expiration date or designate that the expiration date is indefinite). Military dependentsí ID must contain an expiration date
-Employee photo ID issued by Federal, PA, County or Municipal government
-Photo ID cards from an accredited Pennsylvania public or private institution of higher learning
-Photo ID cards issued by a Pennsylvania care facility, including long-term care facilities, assisted living residences or personal care homes
-A non-photo ID issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for those with religious objections to being photographed. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation offers state identification cards for those with religious objections to being photographed. To obtain a non-photo ID for religious reasons, applicants must fill out an affidavit, which you can get from any driver license center. For a list of drivers license centers in PA click here.
If you do not have one of these IDs and require one for voting purposes, you may be entitled to get one FREE OF CHARGE at a PennDOT Driver License Center. To find the Driver License Center nearest you, and learn what identification and residency documentation you will need to get a photo ID visit PennDOT's Voter ID website or call the Department of State's Voter ID Hotline at 1-877-VotesPA (1-877-868-3772).
NO ONE legally entitled to vote will be denied the right to do so. If you do not have a photo ID or are indigent and unable to obtain one without payment of a fee, you may cast a provisional ballot, and will have six days to provide your photo ID and/or an affirmation to your county elections office to have your ballot count. If you have a religious objection to being photographed you can still vote by presenting a valid without-photo driverís license or a valid without-photo ID card issued by PennDOT.
If you plan on voting by Absentee Ballot on the November 6, 2012 General Election, you will need to provide proof of identification. Be sure to see what identification is required by the Voter ID Law.
