How To: New Pa. Voter ID

Red tape cut for some Pa. voters who lack photo ID

State officials say Pennsylvania voters now can use long-expired state driver's licenses to obtain a photo ID card more easily.

Secretary of State Carol Aichele said Wednesday the new policy will allow most people with a Pennsylvania license that expired more than year ago to use it to verify their identity and qualify for a non-driver photo ID card through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Others seeking the cards need to provide a Social Security card and additional documentation.

Aichele says the new policy should help senior citizens who stopped driving years ago but whose photo and other identifying information remains in PennDOT's files.

The state's new voter-ID law will require all voters to show photo ID before they may cast ballots in the Nov. 6 general election.
