Voter ID law not a problem in Elk County

April 25, 2012

The state’s recently enacted voter ID law did not adversely effect the voting process in Tuesday’s primary election in Elk County, according to the county’s elections office.
“We didn’t have any problems here in Elk County,” said Kim Frey, the director of Elk County’s Bureau of Elections and Voter Registration. “My poll workers said everything went fine for them. It didn’t seem to be a real big issue.”
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.
