The stateâ€™s recently enacted voter ID law did not adversely effect the voting process in Tuesdayâ€™s primary election in Elk County, according to the countyâ€™s elections office.
â€śWe didnâ€™t have any problems here in Elk County,â€ť said Kim Frey, the director of Elk Countyâ€™s Bureau of Elections and Voter Registration. â€śMy poll workers said everything went fine for them. It didnâ€™t seem to be a real big issue.â€ť
State officials had previously announced a "soft rollout" of the new law for the primary election; voters were asked, but not required, to produce photo identification at the polls on Tuesday. Beginning with the general election in November, a valid photo ID with an expiration date will be required before filling out a ballot.
