Photo ID Requests Met with Forceful Refusals

Photo ID Requests Met with Forceful Refusals

Some Warminster voters have given rude replies to requests for photo identification, election workers in the township told Patch.

"They rejected us pretty forcefully," said Megan Thompson, a college student who signed voters in at the Hartsville Fire Company. "Someone apologized to me after he voted."

Even though Pennsylvania's voter ID law has been passed, a state judge ruled that photo ID would not be required to vote in the 2012 presidential election. However, workers at the polls have been directed to request the photo identification anyway.

"We view this as a soft rollout for when Pennsylvania's voter ID law is in full effect next year," Matthew Keeler, press secretary for the PA Department of State, told Patch.
