PA To Issue New Photo Voter ID For Voters Without Documentation

Secretary of Commonwealth Announces New Voter ID Card

Harrisburg – Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele today announced the
creation of a new card that can be issued to voters who need photo identification
under Pennsylvania’s voter ID law.

The Department of State voter cards, which will be issued by the Pennsylvania
Department of Transportation, will be available to registered voters who are not
able to provide all of the documents they would normally need to obtain a photo ID
from PennDOT, such as a birth certificate.

“As we work to ensure that Pennsylvanians have the identification they need to
vote this fall, this new card will provide another photo ID option for voters,” Aichele

“We believe these new cards will be a safety net for those who may not currently
possess all of the documents they need for a standard photo ID from PennDOT.
Our goals are to continue making voters aware of the new voter ID law and helping
those who may not have proper identification obtain it,” she added.

The new voter photo identification cards are scheduled to be available at PennDOT’s
Drivers License Centers beginning the last week of August. The identification cards
can be issued to registered voters who may not have all of the documents
necessary to obtain a non-driver’s license photo ID from PennDOT, primarily a birth

The IDs, which are free, will be issued to voters for a 10-year period and can only
be used for voting purposes. For Pennsylvania-born voters, PennDOT will still use
the process of confirming birth records electronically with the Pennsylvania
Department of Health to issue non-driver’s license photo IDs for voting.

When requesting these IDs, voters will need to affirm they do not possess any
other approved identification for voting purposes. They will be asked to provide two
proofs of residence, such as a utility bill, along with their date of birth and Social
Security number, if the customer has an assigned number. PennDOT will validate
the voter registration status with the Department of State while the voter is in the
PennDOT office. Upon confirmation of this information, the voter will be issued the
voter card before leaving the PennDOT facility.

These cards will be issued by PennDOT up to and through Election Day, Nov. 6,
2012, and thereafter.

“The creation of these voter cards is an important step in the implementation of the
voter ID law,” Aichele said. “Everyone who needs ID to vote will be able to get it
months before the election,” she added.
