Registered Voters Who Lack Proof of Identification Can Still Obtain a Voter ID by Filing an Affirmation Form, Says Everett
MUNCY – Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming) said today that registered voters who do not possess any form of proof of identification laid out in the voter ID law can still obtain an ID by filling out and signing an oath of affirmation at a PennDOT Driver License Center.
“In the rare case in which an actual registered voter does not have a proper ID, there is still a process in which they can get a voter ID simply by visiting the PennDOT Driver License Center, which should solve any problem,” said Everett. “There is still plenty of time to get that done in time for the November general election.”
The form in question simply states that the registered voter affirms that he or she does NOT possess any of the following forms of identification:
• Identification issued by the U. S. government that includes the name, a photo
and an expiration date that is not expired.
• Identification issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
• Identification issued by a municipality of the Commonwealth to an employee of
that municipality that includes a name, photo and an expiration date that has not
• Identification issued by an accredited Pennsylvania public or private institution of
higher learning that includes a name, photo and an expiration date that has not
• Identification issued by a Pennsylvania care facility that includes a name, photo
and an expiration date that has not been reached.
“If voters have an ID product that has expired (ID or license) and that has not been expired for more than one year, they will be able to vote with what they have,” said Everett.
