My youngest nephew is registered to vote.........

I have 8 nieces & nephews. The youngest will be 18 in early October. He sent in his voter registration forms about 2 1/2 months ago as he will be 18 before the November election.

I have been checking the data base for the last month & even call the elections dept. They held up sending him his card, as there was a special election in the county in early August, that he would not be eligible to vote in. However, this special election was not in his district.

Well I checked the data base last night, and he is registered. I texted my congratulations to him. The only thing worrying me, is that we're in PA and he does not have a photo ID. He is planning on taking his Driver's test in October, if he passes he will have his ID. I have plans for him to vote absentee, in case he doesn't have that ID.

I am worried about the 18 year old high school students across the state who may have a high school ID, but no DL. Under the PA law, a high school ID is not considered a valid ID.

1. If those who promulgated this law thought it would only affect Liberals ...

 

Think again .... This law could disenfranchise whole blocks of young voters of ALL stripes ....

2. PennDOT will issue a photo ID (non-driver) for something like $13 bucks.

 

My middle one got one of those (forget why) before she got her learner's permit. You need a birth certificate and SS card to get it and it takes about ten minutes.
