The article specifically states that the ID to be issued is a PHOTO ID. It would be an official County document and could only be used legally, therefore safely, by the person whose picture is on it.
This sounds very much to me what the Commonwealth General Assembly had in mind.
The only argument I see is that a uniform statewide standard is preferable, which is probably why Corbett and others object.
So let the state set the standard and order the counties to conform to it. In the meantime let election monitors scrutinize any photo ID presented.
If the photo of a live person is issued to a dead name, what exactly will clerks and judges of elections (I am one, although not in this county) be able to "scrutinize?"
Nursing homes are run by SEIU. Beginning to understand the problem?
