Elections office reacts to voter ID bill

March 21, 2012

RIDGWAY - Kimberly Frey, director of Elk County's elections office, spoke Tuesday morning at an Elk County Board of Commissioners meeting to discuss the recent enactment of a Pennsylvania voter identification bill (H.B. 934, Act 18 of 2012).
"For the Primary Election, there will be what they call 'a soft rollout,'" Frey said. "Every voter that goes through a polling place will have to show photo identification. What qualifies as photo identification is a U.S. federal government or commonwealth-issued ID with a picture, an expiration date on it and a signature, that's what will be required in the fall.
