Skip to comments.Few Getting Free State ID Cards (FREE Voter IDs in PA !)
Posted on 09/08/2012 8:43:07 AM PDT by tomkat
SUNBURY Although state officials estimate that thousands of residents of the Central Susquehanna Valley lack valid identification under the new state Voter ID law, fewer than 60 in three Valley counties have been issued secure identification cards, according to state Department of Transportation spokeswoman Jan McKnight . . .

The free IDs are part of the states push to make sure registered voters are able to cast ballots on the heels of the March voter ID law, McKnight said . . .
Valid identification for voting includes not only valid drivers licenses, but also drivers licenses that have expired within the past 12 months, McKnight said. People with (those) will not qualify for a free ID, she said . . .
While PennDOT estimated that more than 3,700 voters in Northumberland County and more than 700,000 people statewide did not have a PennDOT identification card, the discrepancy in the numbers may be because those individuals had other acceptable forms of identification, or simply chose not to get a valid identification, McKnight said.

We may yet disappoint everyone, but this is one of the factors that may bring PA back into the sanity column on 06 November.
My guess is there are a lot of 0bama voters that don’t want to apply for an officially issued state ID card because it might be discovered that they have some outstanding warrants, haven’t made their child support payments, etc., etc.
All the stuff in my #1 above is from the linked article.
The people who can legally vote have a photo Id. The laws for photo Id are put in place to stop the vote early vote often organized left.
Turnout in Philly will be the usual 120 percent of registered voters.
Thanks for the link
Excellent point ! !
I’d like to see Gov.Corbett mobilize the PA National Guard to ride shotgun on polling places in Philthy and Da’burgh.
It is obvious that these inflated estimates of people who lack a photo ID are wrong. The same held true in Kansas after it passed its tough voter ID bill. This is just more nonsense from the Left. Very few people in this country lack a photo ID.
Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!
Hadn't thought of that. And of course the felon vote is an important Obama voting bloc.
“In other words, even when IDs are FREE, thousands and thousands won’t go to the trouble of getting one “
“Free” doesn’t mean a thing unless the issuer is willing to come directly to the lazy-ass whiners and pay them to take it. Otherwise they can keep complaining that the “inconvenience” somehow infringes on their rights.
What color is the sky in your world?
(preferably with a pizza and a 6pk ;-)
You preferred Rendell in yours ?
Still pimpin’ eh?
Can’t the volunteers bring the machines and whatever is necessary to make the ID cards to events so that people who don’t have an id can get one. Both Republicans and Democrats are in the same boat with regards to elderly especially who lose their driver’s licenses when they can no longer driver. This seems to me to be the best option for everyone.
