Nearly 10 percent of Pennsylvania’s registered voters do not have photo identification cards from the state transportation department and could be ineligible to vote in November under the state’s new Republican-backed voter ID law.
The Pennsylvania Department of State
reported Tuesday that more than 758,000 registered voters lack a
standard driver’s license or a non-driver photo ID. That’s 9.2 percent
of the state’s 8.2 million voters.
In Philadelphia, where
Democrats outnumber Republicans by about 6-1, 18 percent of the city’s
registered voters do not have the state photo ID, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
