PA Voter Identification Law

I got my driver's license photo taken today. The place was very busy processing people who are getting photo ID's for voting (Available at no charge). I want to make sure two friends of mine, who don't drive and have expired licenses, get theirs taken care of. This will be difficult, since one of them is currently using a wheelchair, and it won't fit in my car.

I had hoped that the judge reviewing it would put a stay on its implementation, since voter fraud is obviously a grossly exaggerated non-issue. No such luck.

If Romney takes this state, I think this law will be to blame, since PA has not voted for a Republican President for years, and Romney is far from the strongest candidate they've put out recently (and since that is clearly the real reason for the law).

I've not checked the details, but you can still vote absentee if you don't have an ID, right? I would want everyone to be able to vote, though I do understand why it's important to show ID, too. Unless of course you vote in the same little town you have lived in your whole life where all the people working the ballot box know who you are by sight....which is, oh look, true for half the people of PA.

It's very good of you to help your friends out!

Early/absentee voting in PA is just for people with a legitimate reason for not being able to vote on the day, such as military service. There is no "vote-early-if-you-feel-like-it" option.

People without proper ID will be allowed to vote, but they must supply a valid ID within days (a week, I think) for that vote to count.
