Gov. Tom Corbett signed House Bill 934 into law Wednesday, requiring all Pennsylvania residents to produce photo identification when they vote.
Gov. Corbett said in a news release he signed the bill because it protects the principal of one person, one vote and sets a standard to protect the integrity of elections.
The law goes into effect immediately, but the photo ID will not be required for next month’s primary election. It will be required for November’s general election.
Some examples of a photo ID include a Pennsylvania driver’s license or non-driver license photo ID, a military ID, valid U.S. passport, county or municipal employee ID, college ID, or personal care home ID. All photo IDs must be current and include an expiration date.
