Pa. Adopts Voter ID Law | UPI.com | 3/15/12

HARRISBURG (UPI) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett signed a stringent new voter identification law late Wednesday, within hours of its final legislative passage.

The measure passed the state House of Representatives 104-88, with three Republicans joining all Democrats in opposing it. The chamber held an unusual three-day debate on the bill.

Voters will have to present photo identification that can include a driver’s license, student ID from an in-state college, passport or ID from a nursing home or assisted living facility. A court challenge appears almost certain, the newspaper said.
