It is telling that a party that claims to worship the Constitution is so willing to discard it for any potential political advantage.

I am also registered republican in a heavily democratic ward. I was told I could not vote without a government issued photo ID. I smiled, produced my driver's license and asked to be shown the discrepancy in signatures. There was none. I know what voter suppresion is.
    that great you were able to produce a id card, however not everyone has id card or ever needed one for everyday living in their community. A lot people including myself don't have driver's licence. I do have id card in CA. If voter fraud was such a big problem then any government trying to require photo id also needs to provide easy way for their citizens to get one. Something this law didn't do.

    good move PA!

    proud of my state today


    and for the record Im totally in favor of voter ID under MY conditions.

    that many forms of IDs that already exist are accepted and one can easily and readily be obtained from the state free of charge at many locations including on line and by mail.

    Why I didnt want PA to do it NOW is because the time frame was unfair and thats also what PA decided.

    Cant implement a law like this so close to elections, thats BS because in REALITY there are many people that would have issues getting an ID and that simply is not right.

    Agreed to those conditions, and really, you're right, these changes should be made with plenty of lead time. However, I can't envision the state of PA ever offerring anything for free.

    How much lead time is reasonable? There were elections in the spring. A dry run was held. People were asked for photo ID and informed that they could vote without it this time but would need it for all elections beginning in November. All PennDOT offices offered FREE ID cards to all who needed them.

    Too bad the US Supreme Court already ruled that requiring photo id's to vote does not violate anyones rights.
