Pennsylvania voters should expect to be asked for photo identification in Tuesday's primary election, but those without it won't be barred from voting.
The primary is being used as a dress rehearsal for the new law that will be enforced starting with the Nov. 6 general election.
"Basically, any voter who comes in will be asked for ID," said Deb Olivieri, the director of elections for Berks County.
A valid Pennsylvania ID will be a voting necessity come November. A media ID, for example, won't cut through the political red tape.
"For one, it's not government-issued and not an accredited university or municipal ID, plus does not have an expiration date on it," Olivieri said.
So, what will get your vote counted? For one, it must have an expiration date.
So, a driver's license, U.S. passport, military or government ID, student ID and assisted living ID cards are golden, but Olivieri noted student and senior IDs don't always have an expiration date.
"If not sure, there are some samples out there. Shouldn't be any issues for tomorrow, just a soft role out," she said.
While last-minute polling preparations were handed out Monday, precinct judges, like Lynda Jarsocrak, were holding their breaths things will go as planned.
"It will really slow things down for the presidential, and that one gets really busy because people who don't come any other time tend to come out for the presidential," Jarsocrak said.
Remember, Tuesday's primary election is just a dry run. However, if you've never voted before, then a proper ID is a must for your vote to count Tuesday. Otherwise, you'll be fine until November.
