The Pike County Democratic Committee notes with profound dismay and great concern that the Republican-dominated Corbett administration persists in its attempt to suppress voter turnout in the upcoming election. This is despite the recent ruling of the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court postponing enforcement of the hotly-contested Photo Voter ID Law.
Pike County voters are advised that even though election officials may ask for photo identification, voters do not have to produce any form of ID and cannot be prevented from voting because they refuse to show or do not have ID with them. The only exception is for voters who are voting for the first time at a polling place. In such cases, the voter will be asked for ID and may show a driver’s license, a voter registration card received from the Pike County Board of Elections, a school identification card, or any similar, reasonably trustworthy ID. Such ID need not be a photo ID, nor must the ID have an expiration date on it.
Please remember to vote on November 6. Your vote counts. It is your right and privilege as a U.S. citizen. Men and women, great American patriots, have given their lives to preserve this right for you. Should you need transportation to your polling place, please call the Pike County Democratic Committee at 570/618-0231. We will arrange transportation for you. If you call after hours, please leave a message and a phone number on which you can be reached. Your call will be returned.
Julius Litman, Chairman
