Pa. updates badges for Voter ID requirement

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - July 17, 2012

The old badges lack the expiration date required by the state's new Voter ID law. The law requires voters to present photo identification that meets certain criteria when visiting their polling place.

The state's Department of General Services said last week it would issue modified badges to employees planning to use them to vote in the November election. The Patriot-News of Harrisburg (http://bit.ly/NeDBen ) reports 39 employees had gotten modified badges by Monday.

State officials say most state workers will have another type of identification that meets the new law's requirements.
