Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Voters Get Bogus Mailer Requiring "Photo ID" to Vote

| by Michael Allen

Voters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, recently received a misleading mailer from the state claiming that they have to show a photo ID in order to vote.

The Pennsylvania Department of State produced the mailer, which was sent out in September before the photo ID law was blocked by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson, who ruled on October 2 that the law would not be implemented until the 2013 primary election, reports Philly.com.

Pennsylvania State Department spokesman Ron Ruman told Philly.com: “These mailings all were sent between Sept. 17 and 24. We are looking into this, but the Department of State did not send these cards at this time.”

Polling place workers will ask voters for identification during today's general election, but it is not required to vote.
