Pennsylvania's largest energy utility is acknowledging it sent incorrect voter ID information to 1.3 million customers in seven Pennsylvania counties.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Wednesday that a Peco newsletter wrongly tells voters they must present a valid photo ID to vote in the general election Nov. 6.

A judge suspended Pennsylvania photo ID requirement in a ruling on Oct. 2 - just as Peco's newsletter began arriving in customer mailboxes inside their electric bills.

The Inquirer reported Tuesday that 34,000 retired Philadelphia city workers received a flier in the mail that also gives the same inaccurate information.
 
Officials said that the judge's ruling came too late to stop the mailings from going out.
