In March, Gov. Tom Corbett signed into law House Bill 934, also known as the Photo Voter ID bill, which will require Pennsylvanians to show photo identification at their polling place when they vote. “I am signing this bill because it protects a sacred principle, one shared by every citizen of this nation. That principle is: one person, one vote,” Corbett said in a press release last month. “It sets a simple and clear standard to protect the integrity of our elections.” The law went into effect immediately, but a photo ID will not be required for the primary election April 24. However, voters will be reminded at that time that a photo ID will be required for November’s general election.
“It’ll have a small impact on the upcoming primary election,” said Clearfield County Elections Director Dawn Graham. “We’ll be asking for ID, but voters won’t be required to show it.” Graham said at the upcoming primary election, each voter will be given an information sheet, outlining the new voter ID requirements. In November, all voters will be required to show a photo ID before voting at a polling place.
