Pennsylvania Department of State
The Pennsylvania Department of State’s new voter ID will be available at PennDOT driver licensing centers beginning Monday.
The US Department of Justice says it is reviewing whether Pennsylvania’s new voter photo ID law is in compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act.
Pennsylvania’s voter ID law has been at the center of controversy in past weeks, since many opponents say the law is a solution in search of a problem.
The Pennsylvania Department of State reported earlier this year that 99-percent of registered voters have a PennDOT-issued photo ID, but figures released on Tuesday tell a different story.
