Confusion reported over voter ID requirements

Written by The Associated Press | Nov 7, 2012 6:17 AM

(Undated) -- Pennsylvania was the scene of what a state Common Cause official called "widespread" confusion over voter ID requirements.

The state this year enacted a new photo ID requirement but it was put on hold for yesterday's election by a judge amid concern many voters would not be able to comply in time.

Barry Kauffman, the executive director of Common Cause in Pennsylvania, says election workers in many places were demanding IDs even though they are not required.

It was unclear, however, just how many voters may have been turned away or discouraged.
