New Voter ID Laws…Trial Run
“Can I see some identification?” That was the popular question voters
were asked as they headed to the polls today for the primary election.
Although it was a dry run…were voters prepared? News 13 headed to the
polls in Greater Hazleton to find out if voters had there identification
on hand. Tuesday was Primary Election day and although it was generally
a slow day at the polls, workers tell us almost everyone came prepared.
Tuesday’s Primary was used as a practice run to prepare for the general
election in November. By asking voters to show their IDs, it gave them
time to adjust to the new identification rule and prepare to select a
president…so how were they feeling about the new law that will soon
take affect? Every person News 13 spoke with said they think asking for
ID is a good idea and they don’t have any problems with it. Those
without ID cards were still able to vote today, but were reminded that
they will need identification to vote in the general election on Nov. 6.
and given a paper explaining all the details. In addition, those without
an ID are able to get one free of charge at a PennDOT Driver License Center.
