HARRISBURG – Legislation to apply voter ID requirements to each and every election, including photo and non-photo options as acceptable forms of ID has been reintroduced by Lycoming County Rep. Jeff Wheeland. Under House Bill 1579, the forms of ID acceptable are the same as the options that are currently available to first-time voters in PA. They include a driver’s license or PennDOT non-driver ID card; a photo or non-photo ID card issued by another state agency or the U.S. government; a student or employee ID with photo; Armed Forces of the U.S. ID card; a firearm permit; or a current utility bill, bank statement or government check. Currently, 35 states have voter ID requirements.
