A county group formed to help voters deal with Pennsylvania’s controversial photo ID law will conduct its first meeting at 2 p.m., Thursday, at the Bucks County Planning Commission’s offices in Doylestown.
The meeting of the Bucks County Voter ID Educational Advisory Group will be open to the public in the 4th floor Barney Grunmeier conference room, at 1260 Almshouse Rd.
The county commissioners formed the group of 11 volunteers to gather information and make recommendations on ways to educate the public about the new law. Starting with the November elections, voters will be required to present a valid photo ID at all polling places, or they will be turned away.
Voters who do not have a driver’s license or government-issued or student ID with an expiration date can get a free photo ID card from a PennDOT driver’s license center. They must present a Social Security card, two proofs of residency and an original birth certificate, passport, certificate of U.S. citizenship or certificate of naturalization.
