Capitol reporter Mary Wilson covers Pennsylvania politics and issues at the Pennsylvania state capitol.
New Hampshire, among those states that has to subject changes in its election laws to federal review, has just been given the go-ahead to enforce its photo identification requirement at the polls this fall.
In a letter Tuesday, the department said it did not object to the changes.
Under the new law, a wide range of identification would be acceptable for elections this fall, but after that, only driver’s licenses, state-issued non-driver’s identification cards, passports or military IDs would be allowed.
Those without photo identification would sign an affidavit and be photographed by an election official.
Need a refresher as to which states have what requirements? Check out the Post-Gazette’s voter ID map.
