From Equality Pennsylvania:

Recently, The Commonwealth Court ruled that voters DO NOT NEED a photo I.D. to vote on November 6, 2012. The ruling is a major victory for fairness and EQPA wants to make sure everyone understands its implications. If you or someone you know has already given up trying to obtain a photo I.D. and plan to sit out the election know that we just can’t let that happen.

What is the bottom line of this ruling? It means that on November 6th you do not have to show an ID to vote on machines unless you are a first time voter.

A FEW THINGS FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT VOTING:

1. You may be asked for a photo ID at the polls on November 6th, but you cannot be stopped from voting on machines. (If you encounter a challenge, you should call 866-OUR-VOTE for support).

2. Please note that first time voters still need to show an ID, but it does not have to be a photo ID. What follows is a complete list of acceptable IDs for first time voters.

FIRST TIME VOTER’S ID REQUIREMENT:

First time voters can show either photo identification or non-photo identification. Approved forms of voter identification include:

Photo Identification:

•Pennsylvania driver’s license or PENNDOT ID card

• ID issued by any Commonwealth agency

• ID issued by the U.S. Government

• U.S. passport

• U.S. Armed Forces ID

• Student ID

• Employee ID

Non-photo Identification:

(showing name and address)

• Voter registration card issued by voter registration commission

• Non-photo ID issued by the Commonwealth

• Non-photo ID issued by the U.S. Government

• Firearm permit

• Current utility bill

• Current bank statement

• Current paycheck

• Government check


LET’S BE CLEAR: Your vote counts now more than ever. Vote on November 6th, and encourage your friends and family to vote. Now that photo IDs are no longer required, you don’t have an excuse.
